Hungarian company MOL paid Ukraine instead of Russia to resume the supply of Russian oil through the Druzhba pipeline operated by Ukrtansnafta state company, Europeiska Pravda reports referring to Hungarian media.

Russian payment for oil transit was blocked due to sanctions & the oil flow by Druzhba stopped for several days. Druzhba makes for 10% of Russian oil exports to the EU. Hungary demanded to keep these supplies beyond sanctions, which resulted in temporary exceptions for Hungary regarding the embargo on Russian oil.
