The G7 countries confirmed their will to abandon the use of Russian oil in their markets, but do not intend to create obstacles for the purchase of such oil by other parties at prices not exceeding the “ceiling“.

We reaffirm the measures to phase out Russian oil and petroleum products in our domestic markets and emphasize that our ‘price ceiling’ measure is aimed at easing pressure on global oil prices and at supporting oil-importing countries around the world,” the G7 countries stated on September 2.

At the same time, the G7 countries note that they are ready to “support oil importers, ensuring their constant access to Russian oil at prices not exceeding the price limit.”
