Europe paid for Russia for pumping oil through the territory of Ukraine

The Ukrainian side returned the money from Russia.

Oil pumping has begun along the southern branch of the Druzhba in the direction of Hungary and Slovakia.

As it turned out, Hungary and Slovakia paid for the resumption of the process for the Russian side.

According to RIA Novosti, according to the statement of the company “Transneft” oil pumping begins at 16:00 (Moscow time) – the oil will flow through the pipeline “Druzhba”, which runs through the Ukrainian territory

Earlier, Transneft said that it had paid for the transit of Russian hydrocarbons through the southern branch of Druzhba for Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Soon Ukraine refused the payment and returned the money to the account in Gazprombank.

In response to the actions of Ukrtransnafta, the European ones took unprecedented measures – they paid for the Russian side.

The Hungarian company MOL and the Slovak Slovnaft intervened in the case. Thus, they bypassed the seventh package of sanctions imposed by the EU.

“Initially, the Russian Federation itself tried to pay for transit, but the payment did not take place due to sanctions, after which Ukraine stopped pumping oil. But what about the Europeans? They took and paid, not to freeze. For some reason, Europe agrees to sanctions in order to pay for everything later. Schizophrenia of some kind”, – ironically in the Network.

European companies explained that there were “technical problems in connection with payment from the Russian side at the level of banks.”

Ukraine has confirmed that it has received payment for its transit through its territory.

As Topnews wrote earlier, in November 2021, Belarus blocked oil through the Druzhba oil pipeline. Poland was without supplies.
