The Reasons Why China Reduces the Purchase of Gas from Russia are Named
Aleksey Belogoriev, Deputy Chief Director for the Energy Direction of the Institute for Energy and Finance Foundation, noted the tense situation in world politics as one of the reasons.
China is cautious about trade transactions with Russia, despite foreign policy support. Everything related to foreign economic sanctions, China reacts to such risks very painfully and sensitively, he said.
He added that April is always an unstable month, it is too early to predict anything, you need to wait until May-June.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky called on the EU member states to determine specific deadlines for the rejection of Russian gas and oil. He said, addressing the Lithuanian parliament, that it is necessary now to “endorse a truly powerful decision” on sanctions against Russia.
