Shell on Tuesday apologized for buying Russian crude oil last week and said it would completely renounce any involvement in Russian hydrocarbons due to the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

“We are well aware that our decision last week to buy a shipment of Russian crude … was the wrong one, and we regret it,” said Shell (LON:RDSa) chief executive Ben van Beurden.

The British energy company said it would change its crude oil supply chain to move volumes out of the sanctioned country “as quickly as possible” and close its filling stations and production of jet fuel and lubricants in Russia.

The company said the change could take weeks to complete and would result in reduced productivity at some of its refineries.
