Vietnam's major export products to Russia during three-month period included cell phones, accessories and coffee, said the department.

Russia is Vietnam's traditional trade partner and Vietnamese companies consider Russia a potential export market. However, the export revenue to the market is not commensurate with the two countries'potential, assessed Vietnam Industry and Trade Information Center under Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade on Monday.
Vietnam and Russia established diplomatic ties in 1950. In 2013, the two-way trade turnover hit 4 billion U.S. dollars.
