Bosphorus traffic jam arose due to companies’ refusal to show letters of insurance

According to the agency, the reason why the insurance companies refuse to provide the required letters remains unclear. Experts were also indignant at the pressure exerted on Ankara in connection with the incident.

The statement of the Turkish General Directorate notes that from December 1, the passage through the Turkish straits was prohibited for all tankers with fuel, whose owners cannot provide a letter of insurance.

Earlier, the Financial Times, citing sources, reported that a traffic jam off the coast of Turkey was formed in connection with the introduction by the West of a price ceiling for Russian oil.
