The Kremlin commented on reports of granting India a discount on oil

The Kremlin denied media reports that Moscow is ready to supply oil to India at lower prices if New Delhi does not support the plans of the G7 to establish a “price ceiling” on energy supplies from Russia.

In response to a question about this, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday: “No, this is incorrect information.”

Earlier, the Business Standard newspaper, citing sources in the Indian Foreign Ministry, reported that Russia offered India to buy oil from it at a lower price if New Delhi opposes the initiative of the G7 countries to set a ceiling on the price of Russian oil. oil barrels.

Sources indicated that oil rebates should be larger than those offered by Iraq over the past two months.

U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary Vali Ademo said last week that India, given its historical relationship with Russia, has not joined Western sanctions against Moscow, but has not ruled out joining efforts to cap Russian oil prices.
