Platinum Exports Stall

MOSCOW -- No Russian platinum will appear on the market this year even if exports resume in December, Yury Kotlyar, the chairman of Russia's biggest platinum producer, Norilsk Nickel, said Monday.

Some platinum exports may restart next month, but only if cooperation between the legislative and executive bodies on which exports depend works smoothly, he said in an interview.

He doubted this could be done by next month.
