EU removes two types of Russian oil products from price restrictions

The EU has decided to remove two types of Russian oil products from price restrictions. These data are indicated in the statement of the European Commission, which were published on the official website.

Here is what the European Commission says about it:



In the event that oil products from the Russian Federation are processed in third countries by mixing with a product of origin from another country, then this oil product [produced from Russian oil] is no longer considered a product of Russian origin and, accordingly, the price cap mechanism no longer applies to it.

Recall that by decision of the Council of the EU, on February 4, a price ceiling was introduced for Russian oil products. Since February 5, two price levels have been introduced. The first limit of $45 per barrel applies to those oil products that are discounted in relation to crude oil (fuel oil, naphtha), while the second category ($100 per barrel) includes those that are sold at a higher price. , as opposed to crude oil. Here we are talking about diesel fuel and kerosene.

In other words, this means that the received goods acquire a different customs code, and European providers are allowed to provide insurance and transportation services for the above oil products at a price higher than the established limits.

Note that the first countries to impose an embargo on the supply of black gold from the Russian Federation were the United States and Australia. Canada, in turn, has stopped importing it since 2019. In this regard, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to ban all deliveries if the contract specifies the application of a price ceiling.

It is important to emphasize that Russian oil found large buyers in the Asian market. So, just last year, China, India, and Turkey significantly increased the volume of crude oil imports from the Russian Federation. The share of Asian countries in its purchases exceeded 80% by the end of 2022. However, its re-export to European countries is maintained thanks to Singapore acting as an oil hub. At least that's what the West says.

    Oligarchic wars, some were forbidden to buy, others to sell, but if you really want it, you can do everything)) There is no end to this hypocrisy and meanness, maybe it’s enough to invest in the economy of the enemy who kills the citizens of the Russian Federation? If you want Russia to win, for this you should shoot right at the workplace, and nationalize companies. If it's too late...

      Well, as soon as oil products cross the EU border, they are immediately saturated with the molecules of freedom and fall out of sanctions. You, comrade, do not get excited, the country needs currency, 40% of the country's budget is built on the sale of hydrocarbons, and these are pensions, salaries for state employees, medicines, benefits, and payments to the same veterans and fighters of the NWO. The research institutes for the development of new weapons are also state employees, the developments of Space and nuclear power are also ...... It is also necessary to bawl and send everyone through the forest wisely.

        For some reason, it seems to me that if we cut the appetites of our thieves at least by half, then even after the sanctions and other budgets, it will be enough for everyone anyway ..

        Firstly, 40% of this comes from the sale of hydrocarbons around the world, and NATO countries account for less than a third of the total export volume, and maybe even less now.
        Secondly, it’s probably worth asking whether pensioners and state employees agree that for an extra increase of 3-5 thousand rubles, Russia would continue to support the economies of enemy states that finance the murder of their children and grandchildren. I think the answer will be obvious.

          But salaries and pensions for the most part remain in the country! And the rest of the money immediately revolves around the budget. Abroad closed from us, so where is the currency spent? Why are the local bourgeoisie allowed to withdraw currency abroad?!

          Are you interested or just going? Can you advise bring all pensioners to the Yar and shoot to hell , what kind of benefit will it be for the state, you don’t have to pay anything at all. I have a pension of 18 rubles, minus 5 (this is what you propose), minus 6 for rent, minus 2 per month for medicines + I also want to eat. In this situation, I see only one way out - to dig a dugout and live without an eye callus Vitaly.17 (Anatolievich). I foresee the question - why don't children help? And already no. Anyone else want to cut my budget?

        You, citizen, do not strain yourself, because in your arguments you become similar to Siluanov and Nabiullina, and your explanations for the need for a currency (what exactly ???) are absolutely not convincing.
        So, for example, the introduction of a progressive personal income tax scale for excess incomes of up to 45% and an export tax (transfer of capital) can bring several trillion rubles to the budget.
        Name AT LEAST one institution in Russia (I won’t talk about military units) where salaries are paid in foreign currency ...
        From whom, what and for what currency does Russia buy? Cognac for hell knows how many rubles for half a liter? Cigarettes made from sawdust soaked in crap? High-tech products will not be sold to us even for Swiss francs...
        Today it becomes clear that there is no need to keep such a diplomatic corps in the EU countries.
        The country needs to revive PRODUCTION and get rid of SPECULATION.
        Russia's potentials are huge. The main thing is cheap energy carriers.
        Agriculture can begin to be transferred to greenhouse conditions ...
        The presence of a currency does not allow to be completely independent. It was necessary to manage to cheat $ 300 billion (21 trillion rubles) ... belay
        And no one can forbid Russia to print this amount, which is equivalent to frozen assets...
        Moreover, rubles can be printed against the existing reserves of gold, precious metals and precious stones...
        If Russia has such riches, why does it not use them? Why is our oil sold not for rubles, but for paper?

          Currency is required. Not necessarily dollars or hryvnia. For example, AvtoVAZ has no paint now. Therefore, cars are only black and white. Until we have established production, we will have to buy paint. Some crystals are missing for electronics. Produced, but not yet enough. Again, you have to take it somewhere. Someone, of course, will sell for rubles. For example China. And Taiwan or Germany is unlikely.
          Have to reconcile. Until we become self-sufficient. We will no longer disappear behind the "curtain". But in order not to slide down until we provide ourselves with everything, we will have to trade no matter with whom. Although aluminum, oil products, uranium with plutonium to the West can be banned completely. We will ban the import of olives from Italy, apples from Poland, potatoes from Holland, chickens and beef from the United States, and so on. To break everything with the Tribalts, and introduce concessions only in exchange for unhindered communication with Kaliningrad.
          In short, you need to change.
          We just don't need to think about it.
          And about pensioners ... Yes, for five thousand rubles they will beat you to death with clubs

      I have no objections to the fact that all mining companies should be nationalized. Even just a hello. Only, in this context, this is not a solution to the problem. Nationalized oil companies won't sell oil? Then why get it? Where are the workers? Outside? And the nationalized companies will look for loopholes to sell goods. India and China will not buy all the oil, because there is no Druzhba oil pipeline there, but there is one to the West. And the budget needs to be filled. It is easy to give advice when you are not responsible for the consequences of their implementation.

      I am completely against double standards, but your statement "cabbage will drip into the budget" did you yourself understand what you wrote? ON BUDGET!!!! or do you want to close everything in Russia and make a social explosion? Yes, the budget needs a currency, it just so happened that China and India have not yet cut off supplies to Europe. Again, no one canceled the gingerbread Turkey and Hungary confirm this.

    I can't wait - when, finally, will our policy, interests and honor of the country go at least one step ahead of the benefits?
    I'm not talking about feeding cannibalistic kings in Africa with suitcases of money, as in the USSR.
    I'm talking about the fact that you can't pour diesel fuel into tanks that shoot at our men.
    About the fact that Europe, which is at war with us, NOT A DROP of hydrocarbons! Not for any money.

      I'm afraid that at the same time, ordinary citizens have to squirm, and our hucksters continue their activities:
      In June 2022, the Russians withdrew a record volume of foreign currency from the country in at least four years. The amount of funds placed on accounts and deposits in foreign banks reached 266,1 billion rubles, or, at an average exchange rate of 57,2 rubles per dollar, almost 4,7 billion dollars - this is the maximum for the period when the Bank of Russia published such statistics (since 2018 year), writes RBC.

    For 50 years, the USSR built infrastructure and, thanks to it, well and firmly held the countries of Eastern Europe for secondary sexual characteristics. Now we're losing it. And markets and influence. Reconfiguring to the East will take time. And while we build the infrastructure, we will obviously get into debt to both China and India. Well, we will pay with oil and gas.

    Here Stalin did not sell anything that was necessary for the restoration of the USSR and for the people. He did not need to supply foreign countries. So they sang in the song, we don’t need the Turkish coast and we don’t need Africa. And then KPSSosi decided that they needed it and went, and rolled down the hill. The self-sufficiency of the fat-faced in the Communist Party began. Everything, as in the Bible - greed ruined the country. No one defeated her, she was devoured by the ever-hungry party wolves. They broke up for fear of responsibility.

    The article is vague. It is said - he brought out 2 types of oil products. It is logical that the rest of Russian oil products remained "under the ceiling." Those. the West limits Russian profits at the expense of the ceiling on the most profitable direction for us - oil products. At the same time, he does not apply the ceiling to their supplies from third countries from the Russian oil mixture. Russia is forced to sell oil, not oil products. The actions of the West to limit our income are more or less successful.
