Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation called retaliatory measures to the ceiling of prices for Russian oil

In response to the previously announced ceiling on Russian oil prices, Moscow will cut off energy supplies to those countries that will require compliance with these restrictions in the relevant agreements. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak.

At the same time, the Russian side is ready to reduce the production of black gold. At the beginning of 2023, the Russian Federation may reduce its volumes by 5-7 percent.

On December 22, Vladimir Putin said that a decree on appropriate response measures to the introduction by Western "partners" of a ceiling on prices for domestic oil would be signed at the beginning of the last week of December. The Russian leader also stressed that Moscow would not lose anything from the restrictive measures of Western countries, but such non-market steps would not lead to anything good in the future.

In this context, the president pointed to the predatory nature of Western countries trying to impose on the world policies neo-colonialism.

Now they are trying to impose price restrictions. Who is the manufacturer: Russia, Arab countries, Latin America, Asia. Oil is produced in these countries and consumed in Europe and the United States. This is an atavism of colonialism. They are used to plundering other countries

- Putin said, answering questions from the media.

At the same time, the head of state drew attention to the fact that in a rapidly changing world, the West is unlikely to be able to pursue such a policy.

    Previously, it was called "embedding in the economy of world civilization", and now "robbery". If the transition from the first to the second requires 30 years of effort and costs trillions of dollars, then what prospects can we have?

    Oil and gas is energy.
    Energy is civilization.
    Without energy - the stone age, regardless of the past development of the state.
    Selling "for nothing" is criminal.
    So their "ceiling" of prices should become our "floor" multiplied by 10.
    They set a ceiling on oil at $60, which means selling at least $600.
    If you don't want to buy for 600 - go to ...... stone age.

      It would be nice, of course, but everyone is needed on the market, both sellers and buyers))
      In our case, we would have to wait for the decree, but I feel that there will again be some cunning. We will still deliver to the countries that have joined the ceiling, if only the purchasing firms do not hypocritically include the mentioned ceiling in the contracts. Didn't enter? - Please, get the goods.
      Well, opposition!
