Russia is not to be harmed by possible diamond export-targeting sanctions, Gokhran head says

27 october 2014
Possible Western sanctions targeting Russia's diamond export won't significantly harm the national economy, says Gokhran head Andrey Yurin.
"We are one of the main producers and if we withdraw from Western market the first ones to be damaged are their local companies - they will be out of job," Yurin told Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
"Besides, we should remember that diamonds are in high demand on the emerging markets of growing Eastern nations, such as the Arab Emirates and India. They are large-scale consumers and manufacturers. If we withdraw from Western markets they will eagerly purchase our diamonds for their industry," he added.
Russia will hardly be affected, he said.
Yurin reminded that Russia produced about one third of the world's diamonds, about 38 mln carats out of 120 mln carats.
Currently the figure is only growing.
