Metinvest Group plans to move its metallurgical facilities outside the city center of Mariupol and the first step towards the implementation of this program will be the construction of a new cold rolling mill on the territory of the MMK named after M. Ilyich. Yuriy Ryzhenkov, General Director of Metinvest Group, said on the air of Ukraine 24 TV channel, the corresponding contract worth $ 1 billion will be signed this week.
