This Is the Country That Is Most Dependent On Russian Oil


To determine the countries that are most dependent on Russian oil, 24/7 Tempo reviewed data on oil imports from the Trade Statistics Branch of the United Nations Statistics Division curated by the Observatory of Economic Complexity, an online data visualization and distribution platform, and oil production from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Countries were ranked based on the total value of imports of crude oil and refined oil from Russia as a percentage of the sum total of all crude oil and refined oil imports and domestic oil production in 2020. 

Data on domestic oil production from the EIA was converted from barrels per day to U.S. dollars using the average annual price of Brent crude oil in 2020. Data on each country’s vote to condemn Russia came from a special emergency United Nations Security Council session on March 2, 2022, convened to pass a motion demanding Russia stop its offensive in Ukraine and immediately withdraw all troops.
