Washington enquires New Delhi around Russian oil that was shipped to US through India


(MENAFN) Washington has discussed with New Delhi with enquiries around Russian oil outputs that were supposedly distributed to the US through India, a news agency mentioned on report issued on Saturday, quoting Reserve Bank of India Deputy Governor Michael Patra.

As stated by Patra, the US Treasury told the nation’s experts that an Indian ship supposedly shipped in oil from a Russian tanker on the high seas and carried it to a port in the state of Gujarat on the nation’s west coast, where the oil was administered and then exported to New York.

Patra stated at a meeting in Odisha rejoicing 75 years of Indian independence that “You know that there are sanctions against people who are buying Russian oil, and this was reported to us by the US Treasury… It turns out, an Indian ship met a Russian tanker in mid-seas, picked up oil in the mid-seas, came to a port in Gujarat, it was processed in that port and converted into a distillate which actually goes into making single-use plastic. The refined output was put back on that ship and it set sail without a destination. In the mid-seas it received the destination so it reached its course, went to New York.”
