This paper disputes the claim that the gas dispute between Russia and the Ukraine in the winter of 2005-06 was a Russia policy of punishment of the Ukraine. Argued within the paper is the idea that the “gas politics” in fact represent a foreign policy tool and economic motivation that Russian foreign policy makers are currently using to pursue traditional Russian foreign policy goals and Russian economic interests.
