The United State Senate has been submitted a bill called “Act on Energy Diplomacy and Security.” One of its articles stipulates supporting young democracies, of Ukraine and Georgia in particular, in their striving for energy independence, according to RIA Novosti.
“It is necessary to push forward democracy globally through partnership with foreign governments of young democracies such as Ukraine and Georgia in their willingness to bring down their dependency upon imported oil and gas,” reads the bill.
“Energy security is a top priority for many foreign states. It plays a key role in the US relations with these countries,” envisages the bill.
It is a matter of common knowledge that supplies of gas and oil are concentrated in very few countries. The access to them depends on good will of producing countries. The contest between gas and oil seekers for resources may spark political, economic and armed conflicts.
“Oil exporters have sharply increased profit by increasing global prices so that their countries could threaten the global security,” says the bill.
