President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday delivered Russia’s long-awaited response to a Western price cap, signing a decree that bans the supply of oil and oil products to nations participating in the cap from February 1 for five months.
This month the European Union, G7 and Australia agreed on a $60 per-barrel cap on Russian crude oil.
It is one of a series of measures aimed at cutting the Kremlin’s revenue streams, as the war in Ukraine continues.
