Aluminum drops on talk of Rusal sanctions relief

Германия ждет от США особого подхода

Германия ждет от США особого подхода

Aluminium prices plummet after the United States government extended the deadline for the USA customers trading with Rusal to comply with the sanctions imposed on the company.

Earlier in April, the US Treasury Department published a list of new sanctions against 7 Russian businessmen and 12 companies they run.

Rusal produces about 6 percent of the world's aluminum and operates mines, smelters and refineries across the world from Guinea to Ireland and Russian Federation to Jamaica.

According to federal officials, his father's conduct is "potentially a violation of federal law", the Post reported. Reinking is hereby revoked pending a bond hearing on Wednesday, April 25, 2017", the order read .

Indian automobile industry will be impacted in terms of profitability in the near term due to rise in aluminium prices following United States sanctions against Russian producer Rusal, according to rating agency Icra.

On Monday, the Treasury Department said it will consider easing the sanctions on Rusal if Deripaska divests.

"The US government is not targeting the hardworking people who depend on Rusal and its subsidiaries", explained Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

En+ owns hydropower plants in Russian Federation and nearly half of Rusal, the Hong Kong-listed aluminium producer that uses much of the electricity En+ generates. Rio Tinto (RIO) said it could no longer fulfill supply contracts for alumina sourced from joint operations with Rusal in Australia and Ireland because of the USA sanctions.

These peculiarities of the US sanctions policy are both a blessing and a curse for President Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation. Hydro will aim to continue business as usual, ensuring that the company and its customers do not run any risk of breaching U.S. sanctions against Rusal. As the move threatened to disrupt the global Aluminum market and increase the cost of U.S. aluminum importers at a time when President Trump has already announced a 10 percent tariff on all Aluminum imports, the U.S. Treasury has granted relief both to the Aluminum market and Rusal, by announcing a dealy on implementing the sanctions.

Aluminum prices dropped on Monday by as much as 9.4 per cent. The Kremlin and Deripaska did not immediately respond to the announcement.
