The USA reacted to the G7 decision regarding the price limit for Russian oil

The decision of the ministers of the G7 countries to set a price limit for Russian oil will deal a serious blow to the finances of the aggressor country.

This was stated in the statement of US Treasury Secretary Jennifer Yellen.

According to her, today the G7 took an important step forward in achieving a double goal: pressure on global energy prices and simultaneously depriving Russian President Vladimir Putin of income to finance the war in Ukraine.

She also noted that the G7 would significantly reduce the main source of funding for the war, while maintaining supplies to world markets at the expense of lower Russian oil prices.

«Today’s actions will help deal a serious blow to Russian finances and at the same time prevent Russia from waging an unprovoked war against Ukraine and accelerate the deterioration of the Russian economy. We have already begun to see the impact of the price ceiling in Russia’s hasty attempts to negotiate bilateral oil deals at huge discounts.”– added Ellen.

It will be recalled that today the finance ministers of the “Big Seven” (G7) countries agreed on the maximum price for Russian oil.
