Roundtable: “Under attack: Russia’s energy war against Ukraine”, 20 December (College of Europe, Bruges)

Whereas the Ukrainian energy infrastructure remained relatively shielded in the first months of the war, a turning point can be remarked in October 2022. Both the intensity and the number of attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure have increased since this period. Despite the impressive efforts by the Ukrainian government, companies and engineers to restore the grid, blackouts have hit Ukraine’s population. More support will still be needed to restore the network as the attacks rage on. The Energy and Climate Chair of the College of Europe invites five speakers to discuss Russia’s new energy war against Ukraine:

Nataliya Boyko, Advisor on Energy to the Prime Minister of Ukraine

Yuri Kubrushko, Managing Partner of IMEPOWER

Irina Paliashvili, President and Senior Counsel of the Ukrainian Legal Group (RULG)

Moderation: Dirk Buschle, Chairholder of the Energy and Climate Chair and Deputy Director of the Energy Community.

It is taking place on 20 December at 15:30 through WebX
