[quote] Russia is a crucial energy supplier for the EU countries in the region. As Russia is the world’s largest energy exporter, the EU countries are dependent on Russia as a reliable energy supplier, not least when it comes to natural gas. Hence, Russia is very important in terms of energy security. At the same time, Russia’s economy depends on the revenues from the export of oil and natural gas, and this influences many of Russia’s policy areas. [/quote]
