Recall that in early March in ORDA announced the introduction of “provisional administration” in about 50 companies, among which, in particular, enterprises of the Donetsksteel group and Metinvest. “Temporary administrator” of the mining companies was appointed as the company Vneshtorgservis.

The supply of raw materials for metallurgical enterprises located in the self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR”, ended in February 2017 because of the transport blockade from Ukraine. Metinvest March 15, said the loss of control over the activities of their companies in uncontrolled territory.

However, the “temporary administration” on the enterprises of ISD on the tubing was not introduced – nor Alchevsk iron & steel works, Alchevsk neither. Under assumptions of experts, it could be due to the fact that ISD controlled by Russian shareholders.

In particular, according to the state-owned enterprise, in April-June from Russia were delivered to a total of about 430 thousand tons of iron ore concentrate and pellets an unknown manufacturer.

According to sources, the formal delivery of iron ore are from rosrezerva, but really – with mining enterprises of Severstal.
