About webinar
Gazprom has been used to advance Kremlin's political influence rather than economic interest in Europe for over decades. Its role has been substantially scaled since the Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
The enormous reduction in gas supplied through the Nord Stream pipeline, the requirement to pay for the gas in rubles contrary to the terms of the contracts, the failure of the obligation to fill the controlled gas storage, and a lot more are among the recent aspects of this energy war waging by Russia.

The webinar with Dr. Alan Riley, organized by DiXi Group, is called upon to outline the legal aspects of the Gazprom activity in Europe. During the meeting, we will discuss the possible contractions that can be opposed to the Russian energy giant on the legal battlefield.

Topics for the discussion:

  • What does the precedent of the gas turbines returning to Gazprom actually mean for the sanctions regime?
  • The new arbitration processes against Gazprom: the advisability, the reasoning, the odds of success.
  • The European Commission antitrust investigation against Gazprom: the new chapter of the old story
  • Seizure of Gazprom assets in Europe: the legal basis and the current practice.
