Italy's non-EU exports drop 1.8%, dragged down by Russia

Year-on-year data positive

(ANSA) - Rome, December 22 - Italy's exports to non-European Union countries dropped 1.8% in November compared to October, Istat said on Monday in its preliminary estimate.
    The national statistics agency said trade was dragged down by a 23.2% drop in exports to Russia, amid EU sanctions over Moscow's role in the crisis in Ukraine. Despite this, Istat said the year-on-year data for non-EU exports was positive last month. It said these were up 2.6% on November 2013.
