“Every country has its own path to CO2 neutrality. We must defend the Russian way. TATNEFT is already moving in this direction, it is necessary to help it in the export of products. Our state policy should be aimed at support in this area, and not at the introduction of new taxes, ”Sazanov said in his speech at the meeting.
The President of Tatarstan, in turn, emphasized the importance not of oil production itself, but of its further processing.
“Practically in the near future, we may not have any oil for sale at all, we will completely process it,” the President of Tatarstan suggested.
