Leading Western countries agreed on a ceiling on Russian oil - Reuters

The G5 countries and Australia have imposed a price cap on Russian oil. This was reported by Reuters, citing its sources. The decision will come into force on December XNUMX, when the transportation of "black gold" by sea will fall under the sanctions.

The publication clarifies that the price ceiling will be dynamic in order to increase the stability of oil supplies.

At the same time, if these measures turn out to be sufficiently "effective", it is possible that similar restrictions will be introduced on other important positions of Russian exports. Thus, according to the Russian Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov, the West may also impose ceilings on the cost of metals and gas.

Earlier, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said that if Western countries impose price restrictions on oil from Russia, Moscow will refuse to supply energy to those who impose such sanctions.

It is expected that the price ceiling for Russian oil will be at the level of $60 per barrel. Meanwhile, such measures will have virtually no effect on oil exports from Russia - this will be done by the "shadow fleet", which has already proven its effectiveness. Thus, according to Bloomberg, the volume of oil supplies from Russia in September increased compared to the same period in February this year. The bulk of the fuel was shipped to Asian consumers by ships of the "shadow fleet", successfully bypassing anti-Russian sanctions.

    For the Russian Federation, this is bad. Everyone wants to fuck for free, everyone will milk the Russian Federation. Only active actions on the part of the Russian Federation can force a change in attitude towards the Russian Federation. The most correct thing is to attack and beat NATO on all fronts. But our Kremlin has liquid eggs.

    The trade turnover with the EU is about 40%, and therefore it is practically impossible to refuse the supply of energy resources and other raw materials and semi-finished products to the EU without catastrophic consequences for the economy and statehood of the integrity of the Russian Federation.
    The use of the “shadow fleet” and gray schemes for smuggling cannot have a serious impact because “colleagues, partners and friends” in the east will certainly take advantage of the situation in their own interests and no one will pay 1200 instead of the established 60 dollars, and the west will establish tight controls to prevent smuggling and gray schemes and will punish violators of sanctions. Sanctions were imposed against the Russian Federation and Aunt Yellen and Uncle Powell have no complaints about this against our best friend China, India and it’s unnecessary to talk about it - after all, a former British colony and a member of the Commonwealth
    They advertised the transfer of energy trade to the steering wheels, so what? As they bought for dollars, they continue - Gazprombank receives dollars, converts them into the national currency and credits them to the accounts of exporters. What is the conversion of payments into rubles and the departure from dollars? The Central Bank, like a garbage pit, accumulates a toxic currency - dollars, on transactions with which restrictions are imposed.
    Something similar will come up after the introduction of the price ceiling. They will start mixing varieties, suppliers, selling through intermediaries, cheating for the sake of the income of the owners of raw materials, the state budget and survival, and peppy statements that “we are not afraid of the gray wolf” are a traditional attribute of political economic and propaganda campaigns.
