Iranian authorities have detained two Greek tankers carrying oil in response to the detention of Russian ships with their oil


These are Delta Poseidon and Prudent Warrior, they both had the Greek flag in the Persian Gulf. This information was confirmed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.


On May 24, the US Department of Justice, with the assistance of the Greek authorities, confiscated Iranian oil from the Russian tanker Lana. At the same time, it later turned out that the structure that owns the tanker did not fall under the prohibitive measures of the EU.


At the same time, it turned out that no one needed Russian oil of 62 million barrels. Traders cannot yet find a buyer for such a volume of raw materials, and the United States and Great Britain have banned the import of Russian oil and oil products due to the situation in Ukraine. Other countries avoid buying Russian oil for fear of possible sanctions.
