A key element of the sixth package is the embargo on oil imported by sea from Russia, which is expected to be introduced by December. However, in the case of refinery products, the embargo is expected to take effect two months later. The sanctions do not apply to pipelines, so Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic will be able to temporarily import Russian oil through the Druzhba pipeline. Bulgaria and Croatia will also benefit from temporary exceptions. This does not change the fact that by the end of this year the EU will freeze 90% of the oil currently imported from Russia.
