As Russia and Ukraine continue to disagree over natural gas pricing and shipments to Europe, Russia’s growing influence in the region is becoming very apparent. How will the Russia-Ukraine natural gas partnership affect Europe’s foreign and energy policies? What does Russia’s growing influence in the energy sector mean for the United States? During today’s OnPoint, Alexander Mirtchev, founder and president of Krull Corp. and a top international consultant on energy and oil markets, discusses the details of the Russia-Ukraine natural gas partnership and explains why Europe will continue to face shipment disruptions. Mirtchev also discusses Russia’s expanding influence in the energy sector and how this will affect the foreign policy decisions of European nations and the United States

Monica Trauzzi: Welcome to the show. I’m Monica Trauzzi. With us today is Alexander Mirtchev, founder and president of the Krull Corporation and a top international consultant on energy and oil markets. Alexander also serves as the senior economic adviser to the prime minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Alexander, thanks for coming on the show.

Alexander Mirtchev: It’s my pleasure.

Monica Trauzzi: Earlier this week we heard that Ukraine and Russia had finally reached an agreement with their European nations on resuming the supply of natural gas from Russia to Europe. Russia claims that Ukraine has essentially shut off the pipelines that would allow this gas to go to Europe. What’s the latest on where this situation stands and when we actually might see these pipelines reopening and natural gas going to Europe? What’s the situation at this point?

Alexander Mirtchev: I believe, first and foremost, it’s fascinating to see how this issue has been seen from the point of view of different countries in the region and you will see how they project their own political interests on the situation making it much more complex than it is.

New York, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Dressed in her Catch 22 team-logo tank top, Stacy Wu hit for a morning exercise on the lake of World Fair Marina in New York on Sunday, together with her dragon boat teammates.

For the past month, they have come for training twice or three times a week, preparing for a race less than one week away.

Stacy, a New York-based analyst, is the pacer in the team, sitting in the front row, observing the water conditions, and setting up the pace for the boat with her paddle.

As a Chinese American, she learned about the sport from the annual dragon boat festival in Flushing, a Chinese community in New York where she lives.

""I do really enjoy the cultural aspect of it,"" she said. ""I would like to get in touch with my Chinese side.""

This is the second year since Stacy joined Catch22, one of the most prominent dragon boat teams in the city. Born out of New York City's Flushing Bay in 2011, the team has been a breeding ground for dragon boat crews for years.

""Our teammates come from all over New York area, we meet them through our social media sites, through friends and family,"" David Woo, the coach and head of the team, told Xinhua.

Most of the paddlers are drawn to the team by its glorious competition record, not just Asian Americans. It now has nearly 40 members. In New York City, there are quite a few competitive teams like Catch22, along side many other amateur and corporate teams, who can be spotted almost every summer weekend on the lakes in New York City.


In Chinese legend, the dragon boat culture emerged some 2,500 years ago, to mark Qu Yuan, an ancient Chinese patriotic poet, after he drowned himself in the Miluo River.

Qu might never have imagined that his death would inspire a much-loved sport, not only in China, but also all across the world.

The tradition is well-kept in China, where dragon boat races, or the Dragon Boat Festival, are held in many cities on the fifth day of the fifth month of lunar calendar. Rules are also formulated to make the sport into regulated events.

In 1991, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York City took a step future by bringing it to New York's Hudson River, trying to pro.
