According to Ukrmetallurgprom president Alexander Kalenkov, the situation with provision of mining and metal companies with railroad cars is stable – it’s still bad.
“In 10 days, despite our efforts to improve situation, the progress in railroad car supplies is mostly unseen – the same 18%”, he said.
He noted that while some companies could not receive even 10% of the needed cars, a whole lot of private enterprises got 90-100%.
“It is strange, but somehow Ukrzaliznytsia prefers construction materials”, Kalenkov underlined. “It’s clear that the August plans of most metal and mining companies will not be fulfilled”. (Ukrainian metal)
