Big statement amid sanctions on Russia
Since the war in Ukraine, the US and many European countries have imposed various economic sanctions on Russia. For this reason, Russia has offered huge discounts on oil. India is benefiting the most from this. Russia wants India to buy oil from them, it wants to make India the second-largest oil supplier. According to media reports, Russia has also overtaken Saudi Arabia in the oil trade.
There is a deadlock on oil imports from Russia
Indian refiners bought about 25 million barrels of Russian oil in May, which is 16 percent more than oil imports. On the other hand, many western countries are talking about India not doing oil trade with Russia for India to buy oil from Russia. So far India has not said anything against Moscow regarding the Russian attack in Ukraine. However, India is talking of moving ahead with diplomacy and dialogue for an immediate solution to the Ukraine crisis.
India wants to resolve the pressure through diplomatic means
India is the third-largest oil importing country in the world. Oil consumption here is higher than in other countries. India has been importing large quantities of crude oil from Russia. For this reason, he wants to resolve the pressure on other countries through diplomatic means. India says that it imports a small amount of oil from Europe and its consumption is high. For this reason, to meet the consumption of oil, he imports oil from Russia.
