  • Germany plans to stop all imports of Russian oil by year's end as it loosens its energy ties with Moscow over the ongoing war in Ukraine.

  • The share of Russian oil in Germany's supply has fallen from 35% to 12% since the conflict began, the German government says.

  • There are fears an embargo or supply cutoff could leave the two refineries in Germany’s east short of oil, and further raise prices at the pump.
