In a speech to the European Parliament, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen formally proposed a ban on imports of Russian oil by the end of 2022. She indicated the ban would apply to all imports, including “sea-borne and pipeline, crude and refined," as part of the sixth package of sanctions from the EU. When the European Parliament last met, she said, "We started with coal. Now we are addressing our dependency on Russian oil. Let us be clear: it will not be easy. Some Member States are strongly dependent on Russian oil. But we simply have to work on it. We now propose a ban on Russian oil."
