Redirect Kremlin oil revenues, says new Russian anti-war committee


Recognizing the difficulties some European countries face in completely abandoning oil and gas supplies in a short time, a new Russian anti-war committee urges Western democracies to redirect payments for contracted Russian oil and gas supplies to bank accounts in EU member states that are already under sanctions and cannot be used to pay for Putin’s aggression in Ukraine.

Ultimately, permissions for how to use these should be determined by the EU member states following consultations with the legitimate government of Ukraine, say the signatories (below). RTWT
