Moscow offering India crude oil at less than market price

News Desk: India will get crude oil at less than market price. Moscow is offering discounts of up to $35 per barrel. Russia has also offered India an initial purchase of 1.5 crore barrels.

Western nations are not taking this on a good note. However, External Affairs Minister S Jayashankar said “At a time when oil prices are skyrocketing, it is natural that India will move in that direction if it gets a good offer for its countrymen”.
