Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced that his country will not export oil or gas to countries that set a price ceiling.
Peskov said in statements to reporters today, in response to European efforts to put a ceiling on the price of a barrel of Russian oil based on an initiative of the G7 countries, which aims to limit Russian budget revenues: that Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued instructions not to export oil and gas to countries that set a price ceiling.
The finance ministers of the G7 countries (Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, the United States, France and Japan) confirmed last month their intention to impose restrictions on the price of Russian oil as part of the sanctions imposed on Moscow.
In another context, Peskov confirmed that the Russian forces, during the course of the Russian special operation to protect Donbass, did not and will not target social facilities in Ukraine, explaining that the military operation is carrying out its specific tasks, and there were no strikes on social facilities and there is no direction or thinking towards that by targeting them.
Peskov added: With regard to targets that are directly or indirectly linked to military capabilities, they are subject to targeting, stressing that work in this direction continues.
Regarding the statements of French President Emmanuel Macron, who called for punishing and condemning Russia for the missile strikes against Ukraine, Peskov said: We are ready to accept such statements only if similar statements condemn the Ukrainian artillery attacks on civilian targets and residential buildings in Donbass, which have been occurring since 2014, and did not We hear not a single condemnation from the French leadership.
The Kremlin spokesman stressed that the Ukrainian authorities have every opportunity to settle the situation regarding the strikes on Ukrainian energy facilities, and end the suffering of the people by fulfilling the requirements of the Russian side.
