UC Rusal weighs plans to sell aluminium directly to LME

Windalco's parent company, Russian conglomerate, UC Rusal, is weighing plans to sell primary aluminium directly to the London Metal Exchange (LME) as the firm continues to have difficulties in identifying purchasers.
 
Although Rusal is not directly under sanctions, the company has faced harsh blowback from European and American buyers as many have cut ties with Russian related entities. 
 
Additionally, Rusal's continued association with its founder and former head Oleg Deripaska continues to be problematic due to his close association with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
 
In order to get its primary aluminium to market, the company is considering shipping some of its inventory in the Russian city of Vladivostok to various LME warehouses in Asia.
