Martin Jirušek and Tomáš Vlček marked a remarkable publication success. Along with James Henderson from the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, they published an article titled „Russia's energy relations in Southeastern Europe: an analysis of motives in Bulgaria and Greece“. The article was published in the Post-Soviet Affairs journal, which is indexed in the Web of Science database and counts among the top tier journals within the field.
The paper aims to provide an objective, evidence-based analysis of Russian activities in the natural gas and oil sectors of Greece and Bulgaria to establish whether its actions have been implicitly or explicitly politicized and have served to strengthen Russian influence in the region. Formative events as, for instance, negotiations on the South Stream project or the Russia's activities within the Greek economic crisis, were also taken into account.
