“Oil pumping to the Czech Republic via the southern branch of the Druzhba pipeline will resume on Friday at 18:00 GMT (21:00 Moscow time),” RIA Novosti quotes a statement from the company.

Earlier it became known that Transneft had begun resuming the pumping of oil through the southern branch of Druzhba.

On August 9, it was reported about the suspension of transit due to the inability of Russia to pay due to the imposed sanctions.

Later, the Hungarian MOL and the Slovnaft company paid transit fees for the transportation of oil.

The Russian side also agreed with this decision.
