Ukraine’s Prime-Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk has ordered the minister for economic development and trade Aivaras Abromavichus to deal with the metal scrap deficiency.
Taking advantage of the ceasefire in the East of Ukraine, the Russia-supported terrorists plunder Ukrainian companies, said general-major Boris Kremnitsky, the head of Ukrainian part of the Control and ceasefire center.
The State Border Guard has prevented the illegal export of 69 thousand tons of scrap to the Russia-annexed Crimea.
The Federation of Metal Manufacturers of Ukraine has requested ferrous scrap export limits in the second half of 2015.
In June scrap deficiency for domestic consumption totaled 100 thousand tons, or 26% of the needs.
