The Russian government has
imposed a zero import duty on ferrous metal scrap and selected types of rolled
product for a period of nine months, says a Cabinet decree, posted on the
government's website. The duty on scrap was 5%. The roll products subject to
zero duty are flat iron or non-alloyed steel products not wider than 0.6

According to Reusian press agency InterFax, Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK)
(RTS: MAGN), for example, has stopped supplying the GAZ auto works. An MMK
source said the automobile industry's overall debt to MMK was currently 3
billion rubles. MMK's other debtors from the industry were said to include
Avtovaz and Kamaz.

The source said to InterFax pipe makers owed MMK 8 billion rubles. In total,
clients owe MMK 25 billion-27 billion rubles, he said. The Estar steel group's
senior vice president, Andrei Saltanov, said Kamaz owes the group approximately
2 billion rubles, and Estar has now halted supplies to the truck maker.
