El tope del G7 al precio del petróleo ruso entra en vigor
December 5, 2022 - El tope del Grupo de los Siete al precio del petróleo ruso transportado por mar entró en vigor el lunes en una medida de Occidente que busca debilitar la capacidad de Moscú de financiar su guerra en Ucrania.
The price cap, to be enforced by the G7 nations, the European Union and Australia, comes on top of the EU’s embargo on imports of Russian crude by sea and similar pledges by the United States, Canada, Japan and Britain, according to Reuters.
It allows Russian oil to be shipped to third-party countries using G7 and EU tankers, insurance companies and credit institutions, only if the cargo is bought at or below the price cap. As the world’s key shipping and insurance firms are based in G7 countries, the cap could make it difficult for Moscow to sell its oil for a higher price, Reuters said.
