India may import from Russia around 15 million barrels of cheap crude oil in 2022, ignoring the hostile war sanctions promoted by the bankrupt US regime.
Indian Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that New Delhi was negotiating with Russia the price and logistics of shipping discounted oil after Moscow was hit with a US enforced ban on imports.
According to the Business Standard newspaper, BRICS partner India will pay for the Russian oil either with rupees or with rubles.
Russia has faced the worst historical sanctions imposed by some of the Western nations over its decision to launch a military operation against the Kiev junta in Ukraine.
