Russia, Energy Security and Foreign Policy
In the midst of the stand-off in Europe, Russia is facing increasing sanctions from the U.S. and the European Union over its role in Ukraine. This comes as the U.S. has a new diplomat to help Washington navigate the interplay between energy security and its global foreign policy. In a two-part segment, Program Host Bill Loveless will interview Amos Hochstein, the acting special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs at the U.S. State Department. The second segment will delve into a new energy deal that would supply Jordan with natural gas from Israel.

Providing further perspective on the impact of Russian energy sanctions will be Elizabeth Rosenberg, a former U.S. Treasury Department official who has helped implement energy sanctions in the past, and Mark Herlach, an international lawyer who focuses on energy and international business.
