The so-called operational data provided here is a preliminary estimate, made by the Federal Statistical Service of Russia immediately after the reporting month. Statistical reports of a number of enterprises are sometimes delayed, which affects the estimation accuracy. That’s why this preliminary estimate is subject to change once the final annual report is ready and published by Rosstat. The updated numbers and most actual data shall be included into our extended Market Reports.
