The conclusion presents the main results of the theoretical and methodological framework and the practical action of choosing EU and Russian documents for the study and the criteria of their selection. At the same time, it summarises the key findings of the analysis of the energy discourses of the European Union and the Russian Federation in 2004–2014 and presents results based on the comparisons of these discourses. This section also includes several tables that provide an overview of the findings.
