Summary/Abstract: The aim of this article is to analyze whether the Eastern Partnership objectives in the area“Connectivity, energy efficiency, environment and climate change” (20 Deliverables for 2020: Bringing tangible results for citizens) will impact the European Union energy security. The authors put forward the hypothesis that, given current internal challenges for maintaining the EU’s energy security (including security of energy resources supply) and work on the European Commission’s so-called “Winter package”, the implementation of the objectives of the Eastern Partnership in the area of energy weakens already difficult to achieve activities aimed at guaranteeing the EU’s energy security. For this reason, the article attempts to define contemporary challenges for the European Union energy security,with particular emphasis on the obligations arising from the implementation of the Eastern Partnership objectives.
