The author describes it using an analysis of the U.S. political position towards cooperation between Russia and European Union in the field of energy and examination of the general methods of influence. The work attends to the initiatives of the United States targeting the impact on the EU energy market. The research bases on political discourse analysis and employs various international relations theories. The paper demonstrates that the main influence on Russia- EU relations in energy sector lies in political support for the construction of infrastructure bypassing Russia and lobbying freedom from Russian energy.
