The new Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Danyliuk does not rule out the possibility that Russia's ban on the supply of diesel fuel and oil to Ukraine, which should come into force on June 1, could cause problems to Ukraine. Danyliuk said this, as broadcasted by 112.Ukraine.
According to Danyliuk, approximately 40% of Ukraine's diesel fuel is exported from Russia.
"That is an essential part, and, basically, the business already has to think how to diversify deliveries because of these restrictive measures, and this is actually happening,” Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council said.
The NSDC Secretary does not rule out the possibility that "merely a change of supplier" can happen, and there will be no real supply constraints.
“However, as a country, we should be ready for this. It means that the volumes are high, options of diversification exist; some can last for a while, some simply can lead to an increase in the value of the product. That is fuel, so all these issues need to be solved," Danyliuk added.
