The relevance of the work is caused by the need to study the problems of the Russian tungsten industry. The aim of this research is to study the dynamics of commodity flows (production, import, export, consumption) of tungsten products (tungsten concentrates, ammonium paratungstate, tungsten anhydrite, ferrotungsten and metal tungsten); to develop recommenda: tions for optimizing the turnover of tungsten products. Research methods: statistical, graphic, logical. Results. Russia has a sufficient raw material base to provide tungsten products to national consumers and exports. Resumption on Tyr: nyauzsky mining and processing plant in the Kabardino:Balkar Republic, Jedin tungsten:molybdenum combine in the Republic of Bury: atia and implementation of a new production project in Agylkynskoe mine in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is possible. Russian tung: sten raw materials market is subject to sharp fluctuations in production, export and import volumes, complicated by the lack of coordi: nation of interests of mining, processing and consuming tungsten products enterprises. In addition to reducing the production of tung: sten raw materials due to the stop of loss:making mines the counter import:export flows of tungsten concentrates, ammonium para: tungstate and ferrotungsten appeared. These flows formed the dependence on imports for their consumers. To recover Russian tung: sten industry, it is necessary to consolidate enterprises, extracting tungsten raw materials and processing enterprises into vertically inte: grated holdings with the involvement of wealthy investors, the resuscitation of closed mining operations in large and unique fields with poor ores on the basis of improving enrichment technologies, search and development of new fields with rich tungsten ores. On the part of the state, it is possible to assist in improvement of the Russian tungsten industry in terms of supporting infrastructure projects and stimulating import substitution, as well as regulating railway tariffs for tungsten raw material transportation from Russian manufactu: rer to its Russian consumers.
