Russia’s Rosneft stopped supplying diesel through pipelines and rail cars to Ukraine on April 1

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

, Reuters reported in a story based on interviews with five traders. Rosneft does not plan to resume supplies next month and Belarus’ Mozyr refinery plans to cut supplies to Ukraine by 37% next month as it undergoes planned maintenance. Ukraine consumes 7 million tons of diesel a year, importing two thirds from Russia and Belarus. In 2019, Ukraine bought four million tons of diesel from Belarus, paying $2.4 billion. Efforts to compensate with sea and rail shipments are not making up for the diesel shortfall, traders advised Reuters.
