It is reported that Ukraine’s Metinvest has forced to cut production due to the crisis in east Ukraine.
The company said it will not accept new orders temporary; however, it had received many bookings for August and September.
The largest steelmaker in Ukraine said its crude steel production rose by 8% in the second quarter, reaching 2.97 million tons from the previous quarter.
However, the company’s total crude steel output in the first six months dropped by 8% to 5.73 million compared to the same period last year.
