Russian oil supplies to Germany shrink 99.9% — Data
German imports of Russian crude oil have ceased almost entirely amid EU sanctions, the country’s statistics service, Destatis, reported.
Data showed that deliveries of Russian crude shrank by 99.9% in January to just 3,500 tons, down from 2.8 million tons imported in the same month last year.
The share of Russian crude in Germany’s overall fuel imports dropped to 0.1% in January this year from 36.5% recorded in the same period in 2022.
The numbers come in stark contrast even with December’s figures, when Germany imported nearly 1.3 million metric tons of crude oil from Russia, having increased purchases of the commodity from November.
