After the Russo-Ukraine war, India is buying more oil than Russia.
New Delhi. US Finance Minister Janet Yellen says that India will benefit from setting the Russian oil price cap. Yellen, who is visiting India this week, said the US does not want Russia to “unnecessarily profit” from the war and continue to enjoy high oil prices. Significantly, Russia’s share in India’s total oil imports has now increased to 22 percent, whereas till March this year, this figure was only 0.2 percent.
The goal of the US and other G7 countries is to prevent Russia from profiting from oil after its invasion of Ukraine. At the same time, they want that oil supply from Russia to other countries also continues. Russia has been buying more oil from Russia than India since the Ukraine war. This has happened due to Russia giving oil to India at a discount.

Yellen said that the US wants Russian oil to continue to supply global markets, but we want to make sure that Russia does not get an unfair advantage from the war-caused rate hike. Yellen said the Russian oil price cap would benefit countries that buy cheaper oil from Russia. Yellen said, “If India wants to use Western financial services like insurance, the price cap will apply to their purchase.” We believe that the price range will give them an opportunity to get good discounts in the global markets. We hope that India will benefit from this program.
