Ukraine uses more natural gas per capita than any other country in the world. But that cheap gas comes from Russia, which has made no secret of its willingness to use it as an economic weapon. This film is a clear and much-needed examination of how Ukraine and much of Europe are dependent on Russian gas—and the role gas plays in recent Ukrainian politics. Directed by Alex Shiriaieff.

Released in 2014. Run time: 52 minutes.

A discussion will follow. This film is part of the Russian and East European Movie Series. Sponsored by the Russian Studies program and the Office of Cross Disciplinary Studies and Diversity Engagement.
