The two-day international «EU-Russia Energy Dialogue» conference which took place May 29-30, the eighth such conference so far, was once again unable to overcome the stalemate between Moscow and Brussels in the field of energy.

The new Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz has not made much of an impression on the Senate Committee who approved his post.

Also Moniz dodged the question about the development of the huge reserves of natural gas in Alaska.
