G7 coalition agrees $60 per barrel price cap for Russian oil
The Group of Seven (G7) nations and Australia on Friday said they had agreed a $60 per barrel price cap on Russian seaborne crude oil after European Union members overcame resistance from Poland and hammered out a political agreement earlier in the day.
The EU agreed the price after holdout Poland gave its support, paving the way for formal approval over the weekend.
The G7 and Australia said in a statement the price cap would take effect on Dec. 5 or very soon thereafter.
