Slovakia reports compromise on transit of Russian oil via Ukraine
The transit of Russian oil via the Druzhba (Friendship) pipeline to Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, which has been interrupted for several days, could soon be renewed. The spokesman for Slovak refiner Slovnaft, Anton Molnar, told the German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur on Wednesday that both Ukraine and Russia had agreed to a compromise proposal. According to it, Hungarian refiner MOL and its Slovakia subsidiary Slovnaft would pay transit fees to Ukraine for the time being. Slovnaft has already transferred a first payment, Molnar explained.
