YEKATERINBURG, February 10. /TASS/. The exports of goods from the Sverdlovsk Region in the Urals to the United States continue growing, despite western sanctions, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman in Yekaterinburg Alexander Kharlov said on Tuesday.
"The exports of Sverdlovsk goods [to the United States] totaled less than $1.5 billion in 2013 while these exports in the first eleven months of 2014 alone exceeded $1.7 billion," the diplomat said.
Enterprises located in the Middle Urals largely export metallurgical products to the United States. These exports primarily comprise titanium products delivered by Russia’s VSMPO-Avisma titanium producer for the US aerospace giant Boeing.
VSMPO-Avisma is the world’s largest producer of titanium alloys. Russian titanium is used to produce aircraft parts subjected to maximum loads during flight, such as the landing gear, engine and wing pylons.
