This long essay is the second part of a series, with the first part being “USA Russia & China in the Middle East: Alliances & Conflicts”. Over 80 maps are used to explain the energy war between Russia and Turkey, two countries that have been fighting for regional dominance for many centuries.
Today, the main geographical locations of their conflicts are the regions of Central Asia and East Mediterranean Sea. Both Central Asia and the East Mediterranean Sea are of strategic importance for the connection of Europe to the oil and natural gas reserves of the Caspian Sea and the Middle East.
This essay examines in great detail the relations of both Russia and Turkey with the countries of these regions.

About the Author
I have studied economics to postgraduate level. I never worked as an economist though. I worked in the field of charter accountancy and I completed the relevant professional exams (the Greek equivalent of the English A.C.A.). My essays are written for the general reader with no economic or accounting knowledge, and the emphasis is on intuition. All my documents are extremely pro market and quite anti-socialist in nature. I admire economists from the Chicago and the Austrian School i.e. Milton Friedman, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Henry Hazlitt, Murray Rothbard. I am Greek and English is not my first language, so I hope you will excuse potential errors in my syntax.
