EU vereinbart Verbot der meisten Ölimporte aus Russland
May 31, 2022 - Die Europäische Union hat sich zu einer sechsten Runde von Sanktionen gegen Moskau durchgerungen, dazu gehört das Verbot von Ölimporten. Rund 2,3 Millionen Barrels pro Tag an russischem Rohöl gelangen in den Westen über Pipelines und Seeweg / Hafenanlagen.
The sanctions would forbid the purchase of crude oil and petroleum products from Russia delivered to member states by sea but include a temporary exemption for pipeline crude, European Council President Charles Michel said late Monday during a summit in Brussels, according to Bloomberg.
The European Commission has proposed to ban seaborne crude oil six months from adoption, while refined petroleum products would be halted in eight months, according to people familiar with the most recent version of the proposal. Shipments of oil through the giant Druzhba pipeline to central Europe will be spared until a technical solution is found that satisfies the energy needs of Hungary and other landlocked nations, Bloomberg said.
