Interesting Statistics On Russia’s Trade

Here statistics over Russia’s trade with the U.S., the EU and Ukraine can be found:

In 2013, the EU accounted for 45 percent of Russia’s exports, two-thirds of which were natural gas and oil, according to World Trade Organization statistics. Last year, Russia imported $344 billion worth of products from Europe, with machinery ($53 billion) and vehicles ($38 billion) among the biggest import items. The EU supplies about one-third of Russia’s imports.

Ukraine last year sold about $15.75 billion worth of products to Russia – its largest market – with iron and steel and cereals its principal export items. Russia is also major source of Ukraine’s imports, accounting for $25.6 billion of Ukraine purchases, or just under a third of the country’s $77 billion total; the EU accounted for just slightly less.

By comparison, U.S. with Ukraine is negligible, just $2.9 billion in both directions last year
