Russia’s VSMPO-Avisma, the world’s largest titanium producer, is concerned that a proposed ban on supplies of titanium to the United States could squeeze it out of emerging markets.
Russia will stop the supply of titanium, which is necessary for the production of Boeing aircraft, to the United States, Sergey Ryabuhin, the chairman of Federation Council’s committee on budget, declared.
Earlier Russian parliament’s lower house introduced a draft law in response to the US sanctions, which in particular envisaged introduction of ban or restrictions on export of Russian products, equipment made of rare-earth materials and suspension of the cooperation in the areas of aircraft, rocket engine production and nuclear area.
“If such legislation is adopted, it will concern the RD-180 engines produced by the Space Corporation (RSC) Energia. These engines are used in the satellites not only by NASA, but by the Pentagon as well. The United States is launching the military satellites with the help of Russian engines. Among the rare-earth metals, which Russia is supplying to the United States, is titanium, that is necessary for the technological cycle of Boeing aircraft production,” Ryabuhin added.
