In January 2017, Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg took his seat at the inauguration party for US president Donald Trump, and spent the evening marvelling at the seismic political shift in a country he had made his second home. Mr Vekselberg was a frequent visitor to the US, resettled his family there and is seen by many as the most prominent pro-American Russian businessman.
A so-called evidentiary memorandum from the Office of Foreign Assets Control, explaining the sanctions against Deripaska and his companies, said the tycoon sometimes acted in support of Russian President Vladimir Putin and was involved in the energy industry. Metals magnate Deripaska -- who sued the U.S. Treasury and Secretary Steven Mnuchin in March, asking a federal judge to lift the restrictions -- denied those allegations. "Both claims are patently false," Deripaska’s press service said in a response to the memorandum.
In late January Washington lifted the sanctions, imposed on Rusal and its co-owner Oleg Deripaska in April 2018, after intense negotiations and a series of organisational changes within Rusal. Tuesday's results showed recurring net profits dropped to $300 million, from $531 million at the same time last year, sending Rusal's Hong Kong-listed shares down by as much as 4.8% to HK$2.98. "The first quarter of the year was significantly challenged by the past year's events, including the (U.S. Treasury) sanctions which were only lifted on 27 January 2019," Rusal chief executive Evgenii Nikitin said in a statement.
Aluminium tied up in financing deals and collateral for loans, shortages and inventory draws will sustain prices in the physical market even as funds expecting sluggish demand sell derivatives. Physical premiums in Europe, paid above benchmark London Metal Exchange prices around $1,800 (1,384.4 pounds) a tonne, fell to $60 a tonne early January in anticipation of the removal of sanctions on Russian aluminium giant Rusal.
Russian aluminium producer United Company Rusal Plc has reduced its first-quarter sales of value added products (VAP) by 44 percent from a year ago and by 22 percent from the last quarter of 2018 because of sanctions by the United States. Washington imposed the sanctions on Rusal, the world's largest aluminium producer outside China, in April 2018 but lifted them on Jan. 27 as company co-owner Oleg Deripaska reduced his stake after months of talks and several extensions of the deadline for sanctions to take full effect. Despite the lifting of the sanctions, the company said that its sales of VAP metal - alloyed ingots, slabs and some other products - were affected in the first quarter since the contracts were constrained by being signed while the company was still under the sanctions.
Russian aluminium giant Rusal has appointed Charles Brian Hesse the head of its office in the United States at a time when it is trying to strengthen its presence in North America, the firm said in a statement on Tuesday. Prior to joining Rusal, the world's largest aluminium producer outside China, Hesse was the vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas for India's Vedanta, and prior to that, global sales director in a rolled products manufacturer, Aleris International. Rusal earlier in April landed its first investment in the United States since Washington lifted sanctions on it, teaming up with U.S. manufacturer Braidy Industries to build a mill in Kentucky.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — An aluminum company planning to build a $1.7 billion plant in Appalachia said Monday it's forging a partnership with a Russian company that until recently faced U.S. sanctions.
Rusal is making its first investment in the United States since Washington lifted sanctions against the Russian aluminum giant, teaming up with U.S. manufacturer Braidy Industries to build a mill in Kentucky. Rusal, the world's largest aluminum producer outside China, announced the deal in one of the main markets for the sector less then three months after it was removed from a blacklist. It had already resumed supplies to the U.S. market.

An audit of Russian aluminium giant Rusal on its compliance with the terms of a deal under which Washington agreed to lift sanctions on the company was initiated by its parent company En, Rusal was quoted as saying by TASS news agency on Saturday. The audit is a one-off, TASS added, citing Rusal. A firm hired by the U.S. Treasury Department is auditing Rusal to check whether it is complying with the terms of the sanctions deal, Rusal told Reuters earlier this week.
