Complaints about poor-quality oil from Russia growing in Europe

25 April 2019

Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany have refused to accept black gold from the Druzhba pipeline. Minsk has reported the situation to Moscow, adding that it continues pumping oil in the direction of Ukraine. Warsaw notes in its report that the continuation of transit of high-chloride poses a risk of a serious industrial accident for the refineries’ logistics system. Moscow will hold a meeting today on the quality of oil with the participation of the Belarusian side.
