Russian Energy Ministry: West continues to buy Russian gas and oil, doing this in back way

Russian Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov said that Western countries have not stopped buying Russian gas and oil, and they are doing this indirectly, TASS reports


Answering a question from journalists whether it is true that Western countries buy gas and oil from Russia, Mr. Shulginov said, “That's right."

It is reported that, on December 5th, 2022, the European Union embargo on seaborne imports of Russian oil came into force. The G7 countries, the EU and Australia have imposed a price cap for Russian oil supplied by sea at $60 per barrel for their subordinate vessels and territories.
