‘No ceasefire in sight’ – UN Chief’s warning after Putin call



U.N. Chief, António Guterres, says the Ukraine war is “far away” after speaking on the phone with Russia’s Vladimir Putin

Guterres believes a peaceful end to the war is not likely anytime soon, following his conversation with Putin.

German Chancellor Olaf Sholz also spoke with the Russian leader and believes his “attitude hasn’t changed.”

“Unfortunately, I can’t tell you that he has now come to realise that it was a mistake to start this war, and there is no indication that new attitudes are now emerging…

It is still right to talk to each other and to say what I have to say on these issues from my point of view, because I am strongly convinced that Russia must withdraw … so that peace has a chance in the region, and every day it becomes clearer that this is the only chance. We have to talk about that, and that is what I have done.”

Future of the war

Over recent days, Ukraine’s counter-offensive efforts have proven successful, and have instilled hope back to Ukrainians.

Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked his military, during a visit to newly liberated towns.

His speech was followed by a moment’s silence to remember those lost in the war.

Ukrainian forces are now turning their attention to the Luhansk region in the east, which is home to essential transport hubs.

In Russia, China’s leader, Xi Jinping has arrived in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. Here, he will meet with Putin, in what will be the first face-to-face meeting since the Ukraine war began.

The question remains, will China lend support?

Why OPEC policy decisions will have a major impact on oil prices



Despite the fall in oil prices, OPEC and its allies policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.

In May 2023, the total number of rigs drilling for oil and gas was already down by around 7% when compared with its peak in December 2022.

Slower drilling activity eventually translates into slower production growth, creating a delay of up to 6 months.

In the meantime, high levels of production are keeping inventories elevated, especially in the case of gas, which is keeping prices under pressure.

OPEC and its allies are weighing the possibility of further oil supply cuts, despite the fall in oil prices.

OPEC+ and its allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world’s crude.

So, its policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.

Bloomberg’s Senior Oil and Gas Analyst Fernando Valle joins us to discuss.
