The European Commission's (EC) investigation of Gazprom's business practices in the EU raises a number of questions. This article comments on the issue of the EC's jurisdiction in transnational cases in general and in particular — in the context of the Gazprom case, in light of another contribution dealing with this matter. It also sheds some light on the considerations which might have informed Russia's legislative response to the EC's investigation.
