the next level Power up at Bloomberg dot com slash professional For more on this we're joined by our European correspondent That's Maria tadeo Maria good morning to you and thank you so much for joining us Firstly what is the significance of this meeting between the EU and Ukraine as we do see energy prices jump Good morning As you can see here there's a lot of symbolic nature to this trip You know this is happening at a time where we know geopolitical tensions especially with Russia in the EU are jumping That's obvious for everyone to see especially when you look at the Eastern European countries the country like Ukraine that has needed very clear and has been very vocal that they fear for their sovereignty and they feel for the territorial kind of safety and the hands of Russia and the EU's looking to go to retrain today is they are going to be working with you We want to engage with you of course we have money that we're also ready to put to work in the country And there is a European perspective for Ukraine in the future So again it's almost citing what the country is saying If something were to happen with Russia we do consider Ukraine a partner and a country that we would like to help But of course this is happening in the midst of an energy crisis where Ukraine were really matters here It's not so much the axis they have themselves to Russian guests for the transit the offer to some of the Western European countries particularly in Germany as you know the Ukrainians were really fighting hard to stop this nordstream pipeline They worried that they could live up to 1 billion and transit fees on almost annual basis And of course loosen that money could leave the country in a weaker position but also in the hands of Russia when it comes to a destabilized economy So today aside from the poly nature of this and perhaps the word for the politicians with pictures that may come out of this Ukraine is probably going to ask for a very clear commitment from the EU that they will still be a key ally when it comes to the traffic piece but also in particular that they are still going to book the transit fees So Marie as you said Ukraine's president Vladimir zelensky has fiercely opposed the Nord stream two pipeline but as you say the EU could side with Ukraine But the reality is Russia is still in focus where we see it upping supply or keep the pressure on Europe as we are in this situation The ECP on this and it would be the very simple way to take on this is to say Vladimir Putin is doing those ahead of winter He's playing politics once again and he's doing this to almost increase the heat to turn on the heat politically on Western Europe When you look at the energy crisis that we're seeing yes that is part of the Russia has been running a very tight supply but even the Europeans recognized behind the scenes that the energy crisis that we're seeing right now is not just Russia's fault There's a whole combination of elements that go into this We've seen that there renewable energy are not really able to catch up with the more traditional energy sources We've seen that this green transition of course does have lots of teething problems with the Europeans argue is that Russia yes it's not full on the cost of the problem but it's not doing everything that it can to mitigate some of the effects And they will like to see that adjustment and the supply and they will also like to see gas from export more into the region the slips I do this is that of course the Russians will ask for something in return whether it be doctor sanctions whether it means perhaps that some of the financial constraints on the Russian business class get removed or get as I say soften then it remains to be seen but something needs to get done here in terms of the adjustment of the production going into the winter in Europe Bloomberg's Maria tadeo our European correspondent thank you so much for
