Iran detains two Greek tankers in response to the detention of Russian ships

We are talking about the ships Delta Poseidon and Prudent Warrior, which sailed under the flag of Greece in the Persian Gulf. This information was confirmed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The detention is due to the fact that Russian ships were detained in Greece, which carried out the delivery of the necessary resources in accordance with previously concluded agreements.

On May 24, the United States Department of Justice, with the assistance of the Greek authorities, confiscated Iranian oil from the Russian tanker Lana. Moreover, it later became known that the structure that owns the tanker did not fall under the prohibitive measures of the European Union.

At the same time, it turned out that 62 million barrels of Russian oil does not belong to anyone. Traders have not yet been able to find a buyer for such a volume of raw materials, and the United States and Great Britain have banned the import of Russian oil, as well as oil products, due to the situation in Ukraine. Other countries avoid buying Russian oil for fear of possible sanctions.

Earlier, SM-News reported that Greece would send Iranian oil to the US after the incident with the Russian tanker Pegas.
