Denmark has begun negotiations to stop the transportation of sanctioned Russian oil by a «shadow fleet» of tankers through the Baltic Sea.

This was stated by Danish Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen in an interview with Information and Danwatch.

«Denmark has gathered a group of countries to consider further measures against the ‘shadow fleet’. It is important that all new measures can be implemented in practice and are legally sustainable», — Rasmussen said.

He did not specify what exactly the new measures would include but added that he «takes the problem of the «shadow fleet» very seriously».

Outdated oil tankers make up the so-called «shadow fleet» that Russia uses to circumvent sanctions on oil exports, the EP clarifies.

According to the minister, Denmark is engaged in a «confidential dialogue» with other Baltic Sea countries and the EU. The minister also did not disclose which countries will try to curb the «shadow fleet».

As reported, earlier the G7 countries promised further restrictions to combat Russia’s use of the «shadow fleet» to circumvent their sanctions. In addition, British Foreign Secretary David Cameron said that the G7 countries would strengthen sanctions against Russia and continue to fight attempts to circumvent existing restrictions. Cameron, in particular, promised to hunt down tankers used by Russia to illegally export its energy resources.
