Oil Embargo Can Be Imposed on Russia in Two Stages

Europe is not ready to fully block the supply of Russian oil to third countries. In particular, no such important decision is included in the sixth sanctions package. Experts say that the oil embargo on Russia can still be imposed, and it may happen in two stages.

It is necessary to impose an oil embargo so that the enemy’s military-industrial complex does not receive revenues and does not use this money to make missiles that are fired towards Ukraine.
