The increase in prices was affected by a decrease in raw material production in the Russian Federation to a level that meets the terms of the OPEC+ deal.
The gradual lifting of quarantine restrictions in various regions of the world also affects the market. In Japan, the state of emergency was lifted, and in India, domestic air traffic is gradually being restored.
