The mechanism would impose a discount to the market price, in order to limit the resources that Russia derives from the sale of hydrocarbons, while maintaining it above the production price, to preserve an export incentive. But for the ceiling to become a reality, Russia must comply with it and continue to export to countries that have adopted the principle.

09:54 : Hello Robin. I find it hard to understand the decision to cap the price of oil in Russia. How could that be? Russia exploits the deposits and, I suppose, the price at which it wishes to sell its hydrocarbons. How could foreign countries limit prices? If Russia does not want to sell at a capped price, it risks suspending deliveries to European countries. Thanks if you can shed some light.
