Russian diesel could well still be entering the UK, weeks after direct deliveries halted.

There hasn’t been a shipment of diesel-type fuel from a Russian port straight to the UK so far this month and there was only one in June, according to tanker-tracking data from Vortexa Ltd, compiled by Bloomberg. That’s a big change from the more than 160,000 barrels received every day, on average, back in February.
