It’s an audacious move and a test of Russia’s willingness to abide by the rules.

The Kremlin is putting pressure on the Anglo-Dutch company Shell to sell its controlling stake in a gas plant in eastern Russia.

But Shell is resisting the swoop, which has implications for investors and Britain’s future energy security.

State-owned Gazprom, which hopes to take over Shell’s stake in the Sakhalin Two scheme, has said it would like to buy Brititsh Gas’s owner, Centrica.

Our foreign affairs correspondent Nick Paton Walsh reports.
