Trade restrictions

        Trade restrictions in the form of tariffs, duties and quotas are widespread in the steel industry. However, we are less exposed than most other Russian steel producers to these trade restrictions as restrictions on Russian exports have mainly been directed against flat products, whereas most of our exports consist of long products, such as wire rods and rebar. In addition, the abolition by the Russian government of steel export duties in 2002 has also effectively improved exports of Russian steel.

        In May 2008, Russia's Minister of Industry and Trade invited us, as well as other major Russian steel producers such as Metalloinvest, Evraz, Severstal, MMK and NLMK, to develop a joint position on the Russian government's proposal to impose tariffs on exports of steel from Russia or to abolish import tariffs on imported steel products. The text of potential changes to laws, regulations or policies has not been made publicly available. See "Item 3. Key Information—Risk Factors—Risks Relating to Our Business and Industry—We face numerous protective trade restrictions in the export of our steel segment products, and we may face export duties in the future."

        In 2007, approximately 20.0% of our steel segment export sale revenues were derived from sales of steel products that were subject to import restrictions. We describe below the main applicable trade restrictions in our key markets.
