If you are guessing China as No. 1 , You are right , Based on data from the World Integrated Trade Solution (WITS), a trade software of the World Bank, Russia’s most important export partner by far is China, with a share of 13.4 percent of all exports.
The Netherlands follows in second place. This is presumably due to the so-called Rotterdam effect. Rotterdam, for example, as the largest European port, appears as a destination in many trade statistics, even if the goods are merely being unloaded there and then transported up the Rhine to Germany or across the English Channel to England.
The most recent figures also highlight the importance of the Russia-Germany trade relationship – Russia exported mainly crude oil and natural gas worth 19.4 billion euros to Germany – this corresponds to a 59 percent share of all German imports from Russia. Russia also supplied metals, petroleum and coke products and coal to Germany.
Next one in the list is no surprise it’s Putin’s Favorite Belarus. Turkey, South Korea, Italy and Kazakhstan are also important Trade partners . The share of Russian exports to the United Kingdom and the United States, on the other hand, is only 3.1 per cent.
