Financial Times reports that Western countries have decided to refrain from introducing measures to limit the sale of Russian oil due to reduced energy supplies and fears of rising fuel prices.

According to the publication, European politicians have now allowed representatives of Moscow to make some international flights, and have also postponed a plan to ban access to the Lloyd's of London insurance market.

Among other things, the UK has not yet joined the ban for marine insurance of ships that are engaged in the transportation of Russian oil. It is clarified that full-scale restrictions could cause a sharp jump in oil prices and supply shortages.

“Brussels expressed concerns about global energy security and at the end of last month made changes to restrictions on Russian state-owned companies,” – writes the publication.
