RUSSIA SANCTIONS: WON'T HURT
Russia will meet a plan to boost oil flows to China despite Western sanctions over Russia's role in the Ukraine crisis aimed at barring its oil firms from foreign technologies and funds, Russian deputy energy minister said.
"We have recourses that we need, we are able to increase production (in Eastern Siberia), we have finances for that," Kirill Molodsov told an energy conference at Russia's Far East island of Sakhalin.
"Russia does not see any risks or dangers that these projects (to increase oil flows to China) would not be put on stream as decided," he said.
Russia and China last year signed deals to triple oil supplies to China to up to 1.0 million barrels per day (bpd) after 2018.
