The Ukrainian pipeline operator Ukrtransnafta has stopped deliveries of Russian oil via the southern branch of the Druzhba pipeline, which runs through Ukraine to Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, due to the inability for Russia to pay for transportation services due to sanctions imposed by the European Union (EU).

On this occasion, in an interview given on Tuesday to HispanTV, international analyst and president of the Ekai Center in Spain, Adrian Zelaya, noted that in the absence of Russian oil supplies to some EU countries, energy prices will rise due to increased demand.

In this regard, the expert expressed regret that European leaders do not think about lifting anti-Russian sanctions, since in recent months they do not care about the interests of either their citizens or their economy, but follow the interests of the corporate elite of the West.

In addition, Zelaya assured that European countries will continue their anti-Russian measures until the onset of winter, unless something extraordinary happens in the fall, which could lead to radical social destabilization in Europe itself, forcing the ruling class to change its strategy.
