Sainsbury’s is to stop selling Russian diesel from its petrol stations in Gedling borough.

The supermarket group has said it will halt sales from all its 315 petrol stations.

Earlier this year, the government pledged to phase out imports of Russian oil in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by the end of the year.

“This is a complex process but we are committed to working together with the rest of the UK fuel industry and Government to support the ban on Russian oil imports, which is due to take effect by the end of this year.”

The retail giant said it had been working hard to reduce the amount of Russian diesel it was selling since the early days of the war in Ukraine.

Sainsbury’s touted the whole process of ditching Russian diesel as “complex”.

Rhian Bartlett, food commercial director at Sainsbury’s, said: “We stand united with the people of Ukraine and have taken a range of steps to show our support – from helping to fund the humanitarian effort on the ground, to removing products from our stores which are 100% sourced from Russia.

“We have been working hard to reduce the amount of diesel we sell which comes from Russia since the early days of the conflict.

“This is a complex process but we are committed to working together with the rest of the UK fuel industry and Government to support the ban on Russian oil imports, which is due to take effect by the end of this year.”
