As the G7 and European Union implement their new restrictions on Russian oil and gas exports, Ben Judah spoke with Eddie Fishman, Senior Policy Scholar at the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University and nonresident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center, to discuss the price cap.
