Putin prepares for EU trade talks

Soon Russia is expected to be supplying 50% of the EU’s natural gas needs… Some Russian politicians hope to use that dependency to get EU states to tone down their criticisms of Russia…

The EU and Russia have also disagreed over Iran’s nuclear power development program.

Another sticking point has been the lingering conflicts in the former Soviet republics which now lie between Russia and an expanded EU… The EU has called for Russia to respect human rights in Chechnya.
