Not true.. without China and India not buying a lot of Russian crude, demand for Arab crude would have sky rocketed and even Europe would have to pay more. Now, both China and India have reduced import of Saudi crude, thanks to Russian oil for friendly nations..Not really, the rest of the world can buy oil from whoever sell it. The 'rules based world order' (aka the west) can only buy from either the US or west asia. IOW you're allowed to only buy the more expensive stuff. Different markets, different monpolies.
Also, I'm sure Ukrainians will survive. We'd have to wait and see how much camradrie the rest of the europe has with ya all when the snow starts falling.
