Along with this, the president of Transneft stressed that his company is successfully overcoming the difficulties caused by Western sanctions and continues productive cooperation with international partners in alternative directions to Europe.

Meanwhile, the heads of financial departments of the G2 countries are planning to hold an online meeting on September 7, at which it is possible to adopt restrictions on the prices of Russian oil exports.
