EU energy: playing dangerous games with gas

The EU says take-or-pay contracts are inconsistent with a liberalized energy market. However, their abolition could be dangerous. Russia's Gazprom, the main external supplier of gas to western Europe, would find pipeline investment hard to raise without a guaranteed income. This could lead the Russian firm to reduce Europe's share of its gas supplies.

Scottish & Newcastle: brewing up a storm in the East

The major attraction is Hartwall's 50% share of Russia's leading brewer BBH. S&N has been relatively weak in high-growth emerging markets, but its recent acquisitions including Hartwall are changing the situation.

Vimpelcom: mobile boom moves east

The buzz in the Russian mobile market is reminiscent of the European heyday of 1999. However, operators such as Vimpelcom can learn from the western Europeans' mistakes.

Russian oil: breaking away from OPEC policy

Russian oil exports are likely to rise by up to 150,000b/d from June, putting the country on a collision course with Opec.
