The President of the European Council is confident the Russian oil ban will be resolved by Monday.

 Charles Michel is confident that any issues over the proposed ban on Russian oil imports will be resolved by the next council meeting on May 30. Addressing a news conference alongside Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson in Stockholm on Wednesday, Michel said that although he was “still confident” that the bloc would be able to resolve any issues, it would require a lot of dialogue. The Swedish prime minister publicly declared the country’s desire “to go further” with sanctions against Russia. The proposed ban has been opposed mainly by Hungary, which has said such a measure would be “against Hungarian national energy security.”
