The limit introduced by Western states has already led to a reduction in the cost of Russia oil. The corresponding statement was made by the head of the press service of the State Department USA Ned Price. TASS writes about it.

“Even before the moment when the limit came into force, the price of the Russian oil has already decreased,” the politician shared.

Price also stressed that the G7 alliance countries and Australia have introduced a ceiling on Russian oil prices in order to maintain the stability of the global energy market, while not generating income for Russia.
