US sanctions against Iran gave Russian oilmen almost 1 billion dollars

The sanctions that the US administration imposed against Iran and Venezuela did not bring the exact result that was expected in the White House.

The restrictions imposed by Washington in relation to these two countries, which are significant players in the global oil market, have led to the fact that Russia has benefited from this step, which had no choice but to take advantage of the situation.

As the authoritative American publication Bloomberg reports, sanctions led to an increase in global demand for oil from Russia, which allowed exporters to earn almost a billion (905 million) dollars from November 2018 to July 2019.

Analysts of the publication made calculations taking into account the difference between the cost of Russian exported Urals oil and the Brent benchmark for the specified period, in relation to the indicator, which was the average of the last five years.

Experts working with Bloomberg noted that the demand for the Russian brand Urals in the Mediterranean region reached its highest level in history.

According to them, the situation may change in the near future, when the summer car season ends and the European refineries for autumn maintenance start setting up.

    Why be surprised.
    There was Yeltsin - the "friends" the Americans kept in hedgehogs, 20 bucks a barrel.
    A patriotic "liberal and democrat" came - the Americans supported him, at the cost of up to 100 bucks (2008).
    And here a billionaire as a present is not bad at all.

    It’s strange ... - all this is contrary to the absurd Russian policy pursued in the most zealous and most “loyal traditions”, in which the algorithm is the constant and loyal Russian support of Iran ... - Unless the Russian comprehensive support by China of Russia can somewhat “yield” the same passionate Russian support for Iran ... - Which is typical ... - neither China nor Iran will ever support Russia .. - they don’t need that at all ... - But you’ll let it go ... - Russia is absolutely and not necessarily ... - The main thing is to support yourself ... - and there even though the grass is not grow...

    - Well, when else (if it were not for the US sanctions against Iran) Russian Urals oil would be so in demand ... - Now Iran would fill the whole world with its beautiful cheap oil and then who would need this Russian oil Urals spread .. ??? - And so ... the Americans helped make Russian oil in demand ...
    Lucky in that

    Currently, the price of URALS is expressed in dollars and is determined by the value of the Russian currency against the dollar and euro, and is proportional to the price of North Sea oil, taking into account the discount.

    - Well, what can I say ... - The Americans this time did everything for us ...
    - How long is such "luck" ... - After all, Russia continues to support Iran ...
    -Well, here ... no comment ...
