Shell, BP pull business out of Russia following invasion of Ukraine in efforts to apply economic sanctions
Meanwhile, South Africa's number one news site, Briefly News, earlier reported that sanctions against Russia for invading Ukraine have intensified, and petroleum and oil companies such as Shell and BP are now stopping all operations in the country.
Shell made the announcement on Monday, 28 February stating that it will also stop operations at its primary liquefied natural gas plant. Shell is now the largest Western company to stop dealings with Russia, despite being an oil-rich country.
According to SABC News, BP was the first company to pull operations. The British company decided to pull out from Russian oil giant Rosneft, and this move could cost the company close to $25 billion (R385 billion). Norwegian company Equinox is also planning to stop business dealings in Russia.
