Given the impact on "partners and allies", Mnuchin also said that both "US citizens and non-US citizens are now authorized to engage in specified transactions related to winding down or maintaining business" with Rusal and its subsidiaries until October 23. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also said the department would consider a petition from Rusal to lift the sanctions, given the economic troubles the actions caused for US allies. He owns 48 percent of Rusal and controls it through a shareholder agreement with others including Glencore PLC and Viktor Vekselberg, who is also under sanctions.

However, the Russian oligarch is trying to save Rusal without surrendering control. According to Morgan Stanley, it supplied almost 10% of US aluminum imports past year, according to Morgan Stanley, as reported by Reuters. "It is not clear whether potential cancellation of this shareholder agreement would be enough" to satisfy US officials, he said. He has been denied a travel visa to the US multiple times, with the latest instance in 2016, despite pleas on his behalf from Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
