Deliveries of Italian shoes to Russia fell by 23,1%

It is obvious that now Russians are unlikely to be able to afford such a format, so Italian suppliers have to adapt and expand their presence in other markets, ”he added.

On the other hand, a decrease in the volume of deliveries to Russia was offset by an increase in deliveries to the USA, however, small Italian companies are hardly ready for such a radical turn.

Let us remind you that Russia is the third largest women's clothing market for Italy, after France and Germany. It accounts for 8,7% of total exports.
