By GEO´ Newsteam - Gibraltar

China and Russia recently declared their friendship had "no limits".

The BBC has reported that China has become Russia´s biggest oil client after the pariah state sold discounted crude to Beijing amid sanctions over the Ukraine war.

Exports of Russian oil rose by 55% year-on-year displacing Saudi Arabia who had been China's biggest provider despite a post-Covid slump in demand and slowing global economies.

According to data from the Chinese General Administration of Customs the imports into China including supplies pumped through the East Siberia Pacific Ocean pipeline together with shipments by sea, totaled almost 8.42m tonnes last month alone, pushing Saudi Arabia into second place with 7.82m tonnes.

Analysts have confirmed that the Chinese state refining giant Sinopec and state-run Zhenhua Oil, have increased their purchases of Russian crude in recent months after being offered heavy discounts as buyers in Europe and the US shunned Russian energy in line with sanctions over its war on Ukraine.
