It is reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin said in statements on Tuesday that some European countries cannot give up Russian oil, adding during a meeting on the oil industry: “European countries continue to impose new sanctions in the oil and gas markets, it all leads to inflation, but instead of admitting their mistakes, they’re looking for someone to blame.”

He continued: “Europeans are realizing that they cannot completely abandon Russian energy resources. It is also clear that some EU countries, in which the share of Russian energy is particularly high, will not be able to give up our energy for a long time. “

He said that the decisions taken by the European Union “and the declarations on the complete abandonment of Russian energy sources have already caused an increase in oil prices”.
