RFE: Putin Signs Decree Banning Russian Oil Exports To Countries That Impose Price Cap
Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree banning the supply of crude oil to foreign companies and citizens that abide by a $60-per-barrel price cap set by Western allies as a means to squeeze Russian revenue used to fund the war in Ukraine.
The restrictions will take effect on February 1 and remain in effect until July 1, according to the decree signed by Putin on December 27. The decree applies not only to oil but also to oil products; however, the government will separately determine the date from which sales of those products at the established price ceiling will be prohibited.
