According to the report announced on Friday, the United States will supply Russia with more than 100 Russian metals, minerals and chemical products worth $ 2.8 billion. This is seen as a new set of measures for the first anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine.
Although no further details have been announced, it is expected that the United States will impose a 200% import tariff on Russian aluminum.
Market participants are closely watching new tariff or sanctions measures and can predict whether they will affect aluminum markets outside the United States.
The measures aimed at Russian aluminum were supported by US domestic producers, led by Alcoa Crop.
