Russia will not export oil to Western countries that impose a price cap, says deputy prime minister

By Uliana Pavlova

Russia will not export oil to countries that impose price caps, even if production is cut, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said on state television on Sunday.

"I want to underline that our position has not changed, President Vladimir Putin spoke about this, and the government has repeatedly said that we believe that this instrument is not a market one, it is inefficient, it grossly interferes in the market, it is contrary to all the rules already the same WTO," Novak was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.

"We will sell oil and oil products to cooperating countries on market terms, even if we have to reduce production somewhat."

Novak also said that Moscow is working on the mechanisms that would prohibit the use of the price cap instrument.

Some context:

On Friday, the G7 countries and Australia agreed to a $60-a-barrel price cap for Russian oil.

A price of US$60 represents a discount of almost US$27 compared to Brent crude, the world benchmark.

The Urals have been trading at discounts of about $23 in recent days.

Reuters reported that the EU deal included a mechanism to adjust the level of the cap to ensure it was always 5% below market.

The risk of setting a lower price is that Russia could retaliate by cutting its production, which would shake up markets.

Russia has already warned that it would stop supplying countries that adhere to the cap.

The eastern city of Bakhmut has become a prime target for Russian troops, a Ukrainian military official said on Sunday.

Serhii Cherevatyi, spokesman for the Eastern Group of the country's armed forces, said Ukrainian troops were holding out in Bakhmut, describing the situation as "very difficult, but under control."

The Russian units seemed to have made some progress in the city a few days ago, although they also seemed to be taking heavy casualties.

"Bajmut has become the number one target of the occupation army to break through our defense, to reach the direction of Pokrovsk, Sloviansk, Kramatorsk... to demonstrate at least some success of their units directly on the battlefield," he said. Cherevatyi.

Meanwhile, in the Kherson region, the head of the regional military administration, Yaroslav Yanushevych, said Russian forces have again shelled residential areas.

That included attacks on private apartment buildings and other civilian infrastructure, according to Yanushevych.

A civilian in Kherson was killed and two wounded on Saturday, he said.

Ukrainian authorities say Russia left behind numerous mines, tripwires and other dangerous objects throughout the Kherson region, and the National Police reported seizing 4,200 explosive devices and destroying another 1,250.

In the city of Kherson, crews have restored electricity supply, and around 75% of the community had access to electricity as of Sunday morning, according to the regional military administration.
