Moscow never hurt our interests: EAM justifies Russian crude procurement

Following the conflict in Ukraine, India's energy suppliers in the Middle-East gave priority to provide petroleum products to Europe that paid higher prices and New Delhi did not have any option but to procure Russian crude oil which in turn stabilised the global energy market, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has said. In an interview to German economic daily Handelsblatt, Jaishankar also suggested that India was open to play the role of a mediator to end the Russia-Ukraine conflict if approached, but at the same time, said New Delhi does not believe that it should initiate anything in this direction on its own. He asserted that just as India does not expect Europe to have a view of China that is identical to New Delhi's, Europe should understand that India cannot have a view of Russia that is identical to the European one. The external affairs minister said India has had a "stable" and "very friendly" relationship with Russia, and that Moscow never hurt New Delhi's ...

Berger Paints expects margin stability amid rising crude oil prices

Berger Paints India Ltd, the country's second-largest paint manufacturer, does not foresee any significant impact on its profit margins despite the recent surge in crude oil prices, according to a senior company official. Production of paint heavily depends on crude-based derivatives which are used as raw materials. Berger said the current pain is mostly covered with its previous price increases and is not considering any further hikes in the festive season to push sales. However, if crude oil prices continue to remain elevated for a longer duration, the company anticipates a potential dip in profits compared to the first quarter levels. "If the prices remain at this level, which we expect, we see no immediate or significant impact going forward, except that profitability may be lower than in Quarter 1," Berger Paints Managing Director & CEO Abhijit Roy told PTI. Brent crude, a benchmark for India, has at one point of time surged to nearly USD 98 per barrel from USD 75 in July. It
