The occupant authorities of Crimea stated that the share of adulterated petrol in Crimea makes 20 percent. These are the results of the quality checks ran by Rosstandart, the Russian government's organization for quality control.

'In 47 percent of conducted checks, we found diesel fuel that did not match the requirements. In 20 percent, it was adulterated petrol', the message says.

58 samples of diesel fuel and petrol were taken at gas stations across Crimea in May and early June.

Other violations concerned the documentary escort and the marking of the fuel.

The local occupant government insists that this number in Crimea actually dropped compared to that observed in 2018. Last year, Rosstandart observed 70 percent of low-quality diesel fuel and up to 45 pecent of adulterated petrol in the total turnover of fuel substitutes in Crimea.
