According to the message of the European Commission, if a Russian oil product is processed in the territory of a third country by mixing with a product from another state, then the result is a “different product” and the maximum price will not be applied to it.

This also applies to petroleum products that have been “substantially converted in a third country”.

Earlier it was reported that the European Union bans the import of Russian oil products from February 5.

At the same time, the countries of the European Union and the G7 are setting a price ceiling for Russian oil.

A temporary exception has been made for those EU countries that cannot quickly find an alternative to Russian supplies.

They will continue to import until the end of 2023.

On February 4, the EU Council approved a decision to introduce a ceiling on prices for Russian oil products.
