the price of Russian oil remains high, but the country reduces the supply of oil abroad.
the rising cost of fuel in Russia resulted in a sharp increase in demand because of the surge in transport activity after removal of quarantine restrictions in the country. During the quarantine in Russia decreased fuel consumption by 40-50%. This led to a decrease in the production of gasoline in Russia in April for the first time on 10%.
