India Russian Oil Imports: India’s Russian oil imports reached new heights


India Russian Oil Imports: Since the start of Russia-Ukraine war, India has been buying crude oil from Russia in large quantities. For the 11th consecutive month, India made a record by buying crude oil from Russia at concessional rates. A record amount of crude oil was imported from Russia in June. It is estimated that this process of breaking records will continue in the coming times.

Russian oil sales more than Saudi Arabia and Iraq combined

Victor Katona, head of crude oil analysis at data analytics firm Kepler, said in a report that daily volumes rose to 2.2 million barrels per day in June, rising for the 10th consecutive month. Russian oil sales have once again exceeded the combined shipments of Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Kepler had earlier reported that Moscow accounted for 46% of India’s oil imports in May, which was less than 2% before the invasion of Ukraine.
