The chief executive of the largest US aluminum producer asked the US and its allies to take “urgent action” sanctioning Russian metal.

Alcoa Corp. CEO Roy Harvey said Wednesday afternoon the company supports sanctions, and that it makes “intuitive sense” that no more of the metal should be imported into the US.
