* As the Reconciliation Table shows, goods sent/returned for/after processing in Russia/abroad, which have been reported by the customs, are excluded from merchandise exports/imports under BPM6. Under BPM5, such goods were reclassified from one exports/imports sub-category to the other, remaining within exports/imports totals.
