Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Let's recap
• Ban G7 member Urals imports ("embargo" Urals)
• Fix G7 $/bbl Urals below cost, inexplicably
• Penalize unauthorized ROW Ural contracts, shipping, insurance, and imports
• Sell G7 Urals prix fixe sanction waivers to world
• Assume OPEC "excess capacity" exports, becaus obligation to balance demand
• Watch RF production collapse, benchmark $/bbl explode
• Profit!

Actual 1YR trend (ex ROW "discounts", bi-lateral currency settlement)
