Japan Buy Russian Oil: Since the Russia-Ukraine War, relations between Russia and America and allied countries have deteriorated. America and western countries had imposed many types of sanctions to put pressure on Russia. It also includes a cap of $ 60 per barrel on Russian oil. Even after America’s sanctions, its big ally Japan (Japan to Buy Russian Oil) is going to buy oil from Russia at a higher price than this cap. On this matter, Japan has prepared it for this after talking to America. Japan has asked the US to make an exception for the purchase of oil as Japan is in dire need of Russian oil at present.

It is worth noting that the US, the European Union and Australia have refused to insure the ships of all those countries which are buying oil from Russia at a price higher than the fixed cap.
