The member states of the European Union (EU) have agreed on a price cap for Russian oil.
Together with international partners, they want to force Russia to start selling oil to buyers in other countries for a maximum of USD 60 (around EUR 57) per barrel (159 liters) from Monday.
A corresponding agreement was reached by government representatives after long negotiations in Brussels, as confirmed by several diplomats from the dpa news agency.
