The tensions between the United States and Russia in light of the crisis in Ukraine do not seem likely to be resolved in the near future. But in spite of repeated threats of trade sanctions, trade between the two countries does not seem to be declining. Rather the opposite, in fact.
According to American analyst agency Zepol Corporation, the United States' import from Russia remains stable, and the number of twenty-foot containers shipped was actually higher in March than in February, by a total 3,000 teu, says the analyst. So far the import in April is at roughly the same level as the last few months.
