The US resumed oil imports from Russia after a year and a half break

MOSCOW, January 11 USA in October for the first time for a year and a half, they imported oil from Russia, and in November they made a second purchase, follows from an analysis of data from the American statistical service.
Washington in March 2022 introduced a ban on the import of oil and other energy resources from Russia as part of a new tightening of sanctions. American companies purchased the last batch of “black gold” from her in April of that year.

According to the statistics department, in October last year the United States purchased 36.8 thousand barrels of oil from Russia. The cost of imports amounted to 2.7 million dollars.

In November, the volume of purchases amounted to 9.9 thousand barrels for 750 thousand dollars. In both cases, the hydrocarbon was purchased for consumption.

At the same time, one barrel of Russian oil cost the United States $74 in October, and $76 the next month. This is significantly higher than the “price ceiling” set by the country at $60 per barrel.
