The influence of the Ukraine-Russia conflict has been sensed all across the world. With rising oil prices and a projected increase in fuel prices, India may be impacted by a spread of high energy prices. According to a research report issued on Thursday by Edelweiss Broking Limited, India may import as much as 2 million tonnes (mt), or around 15 million barrels of crude, from Russia in 2022, taking advantage of a Russian offer to sell its crude oil cheap and cover the expense of insurance and shipping. The brokerage has said "This comes after reports that Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) bought 3 million barrels of Russian Urals from trader Vitol for May delivery. This will be on cost, insurance and freight (CIF) model, where the seller incurs the costs and pays the freight, including insurance charges."
