Ukraine oil pipeline

Ukraine’s state oil pipeline operator Ukrtransnafta has stopped pumping Russian crude to the EU through the southern branch of the Druzhba pipeline, RIA Novosti reported, citing a Transneft source.

Transit supplies have been halted to Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia, though transit through Belarus in the direction of Poland and Germany continues.

A Transneft spox explained that Russia cannot make payments for transit due to EU sanctions, although the Ukrainian company is insisting on 100% prepayment for its oil transportation services.
