In the first 100 days of the war against Ukraine, Russia earned 93 billion euros in revenues from fossil fuel exports, according to a report by the Research Center for Clean Energy and Air (CREA), a think tank in Finland , quoted by France-Presse and Agerpres. European Union countries have contributed more than 60% to this amount, according to the report.

The publication of the report indicates Ukraine’s strong reasons for urging Westerners to sever all trade ties with Russia in order to stop powering the Kremlin’s war machine.

The European Union has recently imposed a gradual embargo – with exceptions – on its oil imports. Russian gas, on which it is highly dependent, is not currently targeted.

According to CREA, the EU accounted for 61% of fossil fuel imports, or about 57 billion euros, in the first 100 days of the war (February 24 – June 3). By country, the largest importers were China (12.6 billion euros), Germany (12.1 billion) and Italy (7.8 billion).

Russia’s revenues come first from the sale of crude oil (46 billion), followed by gas pipelines (24 billion), then oil products, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and finally coal.
