The Kenyan president, William Ruto, has told the BBC he’s open to buying fuel from Russia.
Several countries have refused to engage with Moscow since the invasion of Ukraine but Mr. Ruto said he’s considering all available options.
President Ruto said he was going to move on to the agenda of making sure that they have government-to-government relationships that will progressively begin the journey to bring the prices of fuel down.
Kenya is facing a deepening economic crisis, sending the price of food and fuel soaring.
Despite rising fuel prices, Mr. Ruto defended his decision last week to scrap some fuel subsidies which he said were unsustainable and prone to abuse. END
