Minister of Industry: Czech Republic supports ending Russia’s oil imports under certain conditions
The Czech Republic will support the end of Russia’s oil supply by the end of this year under certain conditions, and Minister of Industry and Trade Joseph Sikela has made an extraordinary effort with EU colleagues to focus on ensuring adequate gas supplies. Said on Monday after the meeting. The minister also said the Czech Republic continues to refuse to pay Russian gas in the ruble, as Moscow requires.
EU countries are discussing reducing Russia’s oil supply with a new sanctions package to be proposed this week. The Czech Republic will consider supporting the proposal if the EU’s energy purchasing sharing system proves to be working and the union has sufficient oil reserves to fill the possible shortfalls in the European market. He said.
