Alexey Yakubin: The United States advises Ukraine not to touch Russian refineries. How to react?

Information that appears in the American press, including regarding oil refineries, resonates with domestic American issues.

For the current White House Administration, the priority now is the issue of re-election. And it is linked to fuel prices. For Americans, this is almost the most painful topic, because in the USA almost everyone is a driver. And the price of fuel is one of the politically sensitive barometers.

I do not rule out that the information that Washington could allegedly hint to Kyiv through various channels about the need to stop attacks on Russian refineries could potentially be true.

But Ukraine acts on the basis of international law and the right to defense. And it hits military targets or those used in military logistics (the same refineries). Moreover, Russia bypasses many sanctions, including by trading oil and petroleum products, receiving funds for the war from this. And it is logical that Ukraine is trying by all means to reduce Russia’s ability to receive funds for the [military campaign].

As for the United States, they are not so dependent on world fuel prices, because they have serious internal reserves. The States can always use them if they wish. In addition, there are countries nearby (for example, Venezuela) that, if necessary, can compensate for certain nuances with fuel.
