Video-Both FFF and Ukrainians demand ban on Russian oil imports 55 sec

On the 4th March, young people from Fridays for the Future joined protesters in front of the White House supporting Ukraine. They brought a message demanding that the US and the world boycott Russian oil. This sanction would put Putin out of business financially while encouraging use of renewable energy.

Its not just pro-Ukraine and pro-Earth activists demanding that Russia's oil and gas export be stopped anymore. The Washington Post reports the White House is seriously looking at halting US purchases of Russian oil. Only about 2% of US oil consumption comes from Russia, most of that oil and most of the gas goes to Europe. Even they can get by if they cut consumption by according to one estimate 1/3 of current use.
