North Dakota senators sign bill to ban Russian oil purchases



Bismarck, North Dakota – Senators from North Dakota have signed on to a bill that would ban the United States from importing Russian oil.

According to the bill, the US imported almost 700,000 barrels of oil per day from Russia in 2021.

The bill would go into effect 15 days after it is passed, but it would not apply to shipments that are already in transit at the time of enactment.
