What is known about Russian oil

  • The world's largest oil trader Shell will no longer buy oil products containing any, although even the smallest share of Russian origin.
  • The EU will deal an even greater blow to the Russian oil industry, because it is preparing the 6th package of sanctions against Russia. The EU is expected to restrict trade in Russian oil.
  • According to media reports, the EU is developing 3 options for restrictions on Russian oil.
  • But it should be noted that the EU, unfortunately, does not have unity on embargo on Russian oil. In particular, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that the embargo would not bring the end of the war closer.
  • Therefore, the European Parliament appealed to Scholz with a demand to stop blocking sanctions against Russia.
