    Last month, The London Metal Exchange (LME) said in a statement that the LME lifted restrictions on warranting Rusal-branded metal after the United States removed sanctions on the Russian aluminium giant.

    In April, the US introduced new sanctions against Russia, in particular, adding Deripaska and a range of Russian companies, including Rusal, to the OFAC's List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons. The entities included in this list have their assets in the United States blocked, and US citizens are banned from any business with these companies, including any operations with debt and equity instruments.
