Since the beginning of the war, the company's two metallurgical plants in Mariupol, MMKI and Azovstal, have been conservation and suspended. Today, Metinvest is transforming its approaches to production and creating new logistics schemes to support Ukraine's economy and provide Ukrainians with jobs. In Kryvyi Rih alone, Metinvest employs about 20,000 people, including specialists from contractors.

Metinvest Group of Companies is transforming production approaches and creating new logistics schemes to support Ukraine's economy.

"Our Kryvyi Rih enterprises operate by about 40%. The main deterrent is logistics and markets. What we can deliver to our consumers in Europe, we certainly produce and supply. However, it is very important for us today to unblock the Black Sea ports of Ukraine - Yuzhniy, TIS. We are currently resolving the issue of supply by sea. There are the first attempts to rebuild logistics through the ports of the Baltic States and Romania.

In April we are already loading the ship in Constanta and Swinoujscie and we will continue to try to develop it. I hope we will be able to resolve these issues, then the company will be able to load Kryvyi Rih enterprises for 100% of the work. However, it is very important for us today to unblock the Black Sea ports of Ukraine - South, TIS", - explained the CEO of Metinvest Group.

The head of the company also said that Kametstal is currently operating in Kamyansky, and two blast furnaces have been launched in Zaporizhstal, which are currently operating at 50%, and are deciding how to launch another one soon.
