MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian energy ministry has not noticed any changes in electricity consumption at Rusal’s aluminum plants for now, acting deputy energy minister Vyacheslav Kravchenko told reporters on Tuesday.

Rusal, as a part of Russian tycoon Oleg Deripaska’s empire, was put under U.S. sanctions last month. Rusal is the world’s second biggest aluminum producer.
