EU is forced to buy oil from Russia so that it is not sold more expensively in other markets – the head of the European Commission

In this way, the European Union allegedly does not allow Russia to earn even more on energy products.

The European Union is forced to buy oil from Russia. If it is abandoned, Putin will find buyers in other markets and will be able to earn even more, and the price of products will rise.

This opinion was expressed by the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, live on MSNBC.play video

“We always need to find the right balance between not hurting our economy too much… If we completely abandon Russian oil from today, then he (Russian President Vladimir Putin — ed.) will probably be able to sell it on the world market where prices rise and earn more,” von der Leyen said.

Earlier this week, the head of the European Commission said that the oil embargo is a matter of weeks. However, she stressed: Putin should not be able to sell energy raw materials on the world market at higher prices. We must not allow the oil that was destined for the EU to be sold at a higher price to other buyers.

  1. Load of BS. If Biden opened the US oil taps, the price of oil would be around $30 to the barrel, but the Dems believe being green is more important than saving lives.
