Ukraine’s Industrial Union of Donbass (ISD) has failed to make contracted deliveries of billet and slab exports worth a total of about $33.8 million due to unofficial railway blockades, the company said on Wednesday February 22.

ISD failed to supply 54,700 tonnes of billet between February 13 and February 20, it said. It did not name the destination of these exports, which were worth about $20 million.

It also failed to meet export slab supply contracts worth about $13.8 million to Europe over the same period, it said, without specifying the tonnages involved.
