Finland banned individuals from importing fuel from Russia
Finland has introduced a ban on the import of oil products by individuals from Russia in canisters and other containers. This was stated by the representative of the customs of the European country Tuula Lyahderinne, RIA Novosti reports.
Lyakhderinne explained this decision by the sanctions against Russia, which the European Union introduced on June 4. Restrictions are imposed on the direct or indirect purchase, import or transfer of petroleum products from Russia. The import of fuel into Russia is also prohibited.
“Therefore, at the moment, fuel from Russia can only be imported in an ordinary car fuel tank,” Finnish customs said.
Earlier, information appeared that Finland, which had applied for NATO membership, was preparing to fence itself off from Russia with powerful barriers. There is no talk of a continuous powerful barrier yet, the plan was to install a wall only on “critical sections” of the border. Now the countries are separated only by a line of barbed wire.
