The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, considers it justified to limit the price of Russian oil at the level of $30 per barrel.
“In Europe and the world, they have already started talking about the introduction of price caps, that is, about the forced limitation of the price of Russian oil. And there are words about the level of 60 or 70 dollars. Undoubtedly, such words are lies. It is more like an attempt to portray something, and not to do something. And I am grateful to our Polish and Baltic colleagues for their proposals – quite sound. A price cap of up to $30 a barrel seems a more sound proposal, and I am grateful that such a proposal has been voiced and defended. Now is the time to ensure that achievement of Europe”. – emphasized Zelensky.
According to the president, based on this and other similar achievements, none of Europe’s potential enemies will be able to blackmail the continent with energy weapons.
“Europe’s energy security, and therefore price security, will now be based primarily on cooperation and solidarity between Europeans and on European energy rules,” he concluded.
