US buys more Russian oil
While piling on the sanctions, the US also purchased more oil than ever from Russia.
It seems not all banks have been sanctioned with removal of the SWIFT system too on the account the exports still need to be paid for.
US relies on Russian oil after rejoining the Paris Accord. Which means the USA is helping fund the war in Ukraine.
Biden’s ban on oil production on public land has prevented the U.S. being energy independent. It is not about to cut off the purchase of Russia oil which really makes a mockery of the attempts to pressure Russia into halting the war in Ukraine.
Russia is now the second biggest supplier of oil to the U.S.
