Almost 30 Estonian Companies Ask to Lift Anti-Russian Sanctions  

Twenty-eight Estonian companies ask to be temporarily exempted from EU sanctions against Russia in order to continue importing petroleum products from there, as reported by the portal of the state television and radio broadcasting ERR with reference to Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu. 

As reminded, according to the restrictions imposed by the EU against Moscow after the start of the special operation in Ukraine, governments and other government agencies should terminate existing contracts with Russian companies by October 10, 2022.

However, this does not contribute to the improvement of the operation of local companies in Estonia, so some of them demanded to lift the restrictions. Residents of the country, in turn, demanded to publish a list of these companies. According to the minister, the publication does not violate the rules of commercial secrecy.

“I am convinced that the Estonian public is reasonably interested in knowing which Estonian companies have requested exceptions for the transition period to continue oil trade with Russia,” Reinsalu said.

Moreover, he added that Estonia has submitted proposals for a new EU sanctions package that will further hinder the EU’s energy trade with Russia.

As specified, the list of companies that requested exceptions included:

  1. Flexoil OÜ,
  2. Marine Energy Solutions OÜ,
  3. Baltic Marine Bunker AS,
  4. Eurodelta OÜ,
  5. Manoir Energy OÜ,
