Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba responded to the criticism of the US regarding his country’s attacks on Russian oil refineries, Report informs, with reference to RBC Ukraine.

The minister said that Kiev does not observe any impact from the attacks on oil refineries in Russia on energy prices in the world: “We do not think that there is a cause-and-effect relationship between these two points. A week ago, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin expressed his views on this. The US is a great friend of Ukraine. He has done a lot for us. But to be honest, I don’t see a cause-and-effect relationship between attacks on Russian territory and energy prices in the world.”

Kuleba also pointed out that the explosions at oil refineries are regional rather than global: “This can only affect the Russian energy market. We see that there are problems in the Russian energy market, but there are no problems in the world market.”

He also called on the partners to think about the attacks carried out by Russia on the territory of Ukraine.
