Metallurgy was one of the key industries in Ukraine in peacetime, and during the war it became a significant source of filling budgets at all levels, which is extremely important for our economy, so we will continue to implement investment projects in production, because the restoration of our country is ahead," CEO of Metinvest Yuriy Ryzhenkov said during a visit to Kametstal steel plant.

According to him, it will be necessary to rebuild the infrastructure of Ukraine – bridges, roads, buildings.

"For all this, metal is very necessary. And it is precisely in this that the role of Kametstal cannot be overestimated," he said.

Earlier, the general director of Kametstal, Dmytro Lippa, reported that the enterprise was working and is working with 100% capacity utilization.

"We are provided with orders, there are problems with logistics, but we are solving them," he said.
