Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Refuting the media: Punishment and the 2005–2006 gas dispute
by Ringhausen, Jeffrey, M.A., The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2007, 63; 1445454
Abstract (Summary)

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.
