Russia has cut the export duty on "light" oil products it sells to Tajikistan, reported July 5, quoting a resolution signed by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Starting July 1, the duty per tonne of kerosene and diesel fuel is US $298.20, compared to the previous US $309.60. The duty per tonne of gasoline is US $400.50, down from US $415.80, according to Ukraine's Oil News.

Export duties on crude oil and "dark" oil products also fell.

Russia began a series of duty increases March 1, citing a need to fix shortages on its domestic market. Tajikistan imports about 90% of its oil from Russia.
