U.S. Push for Exceptions in Europe’s Sanctions on Russian Oil Gains Traction
Share this @internewscast.com



A U.S. push to pare back one of the European Union’s sanctions on Russian oil has tentatively started to gain traction within the 27-member bloc, with officials weighing whether to allow insurers to cover shipments of Russian oil if the price the oil will sell for falls under a cap.

After weeks of infighting, the EU in early June approved a ban on insuring shipments of Russian oil alongside a ban on imports of Russian oil that is set to go into effect this later year. Because many shipments of Russian oil are insured in the EU and U.K., Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has repeatedly said she is concerned that the EU’s plans could take Russian oil off the global market and further drive up prices.
