This chapter examines the debate and the reactions of the civil society on two proposed pipelines in Russia during the period from the 2000 to 2003. These include the natural gas pipeline that would run to China and the Yukos Oil project. This chapter investigates why the first proposal was met with local resignation and even apathy while the second raised widespread concern and prompted social action. It suggests that these different reactions may be attributed to the differences in people’s perceptions of power, responsibility and accountability about the pipeline projects.

Keywords:   pipeline projects, Russia, China, Yukos Oil, social action, natural gas pipeline, power, responsibility, accountability
