ABSTRACT
Recently many European and Baltic researchers have focused their analyses on the EU energy policy, EU-Russia energy relations, or energy security interests of the Baltic States in general. However, very few have attempted to unite these aspects and to provide a deeper analysis of the Baltic States' approach towards the most important aspect of the external dimension of the common EU energy policy, viz., EU-Russia energy cooperation. By concentrating on current relevant events and latest tendencies, this article endeavours to (at least partially) fill this gap. It aims to explain why Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, though heavily dependent on supplies from Russia, advocate for measures, which are, in fact, impeding the development of closer EU-Russia energy relations. In other words, it analyses the interests of the Baltic States in developing the external dimension of the common EU energy policy.
