Details. According to customs data, China spent $18.9 billion on russian oil, gas and coal in the three months to the end of May, having almost doubled the amount a year earlier.

Meanwhile, India shelled out $5.1 billion in the same period, more than five times the value in March – May 2021. In total, these countries paid $13 billion more than last spring.

As Bloomberg writes, the increase in supplies to these countries helps russia compensate for the losses caused by the reduction in supplies to the United States.

“China is already buying essentially everything that russia can export via pipelines and Pacific ports,” says Lauri Myllyvirta, analyst at the Centre for Research on Energy.

The expert also notes, that energy prices are much higher than they were at this time last year, even accounting for the discounts russia is offering to entice purchasers. However, China’s imports continued a slow uptick in June, while India may have incentive to boost purchases even further in the coming months as a European Union ban on russian oil takes effect, Myllyvirta says.
