The United States, which resumed sanctions against Iran’s oil, banking and transportation sectors on Monday, made an exception for 8 countries. Permission for further purchases of Iranian oil for 180 days was obtained by South Korea, India, China, Turkey, Greece, Japan, Italy and Taiwan, which account for three quarters of the sea transportation of oil from Iran. Washington's decision influenced the dynamics of oil prices. On Tuesday, at 6:04 pm Moscow time, Brent fell 0.37% to 72 dollars 80 cents a barrel. The price of WTI fell 0.2% to 62 dollars 92 cents per barrel.
