Salvatore Babones

SALVATORE BABONES (New York, 1969) earned his PhD in sociology from The Johns Hopkins University (2003).

"Although the EU and several of its most powerful member states condemned Russia’s annexation of Crimea, dependence on Russian gas deterred European countries from taking any really meaningful action in response to the crisis. In theory, the EU could have crippled the Russian economy by placing an embargo on Russian energy, but to do so would have plunged much of Europe into cold and darkness."
