The noose is tightening on Russian raw materials. After coal and oil, it will perhaps be the turn of metals to appear on a blacklist. The initiative does not come from the European Union, but from the London Metal Exchange (LME), the market that serves as a benchmark for prices worldwide. He wonders whether and under what conditions he should ban deliveries of Russian metals in his vast network of warehouses around the world, revealed Bloomberg.
