Ukraine, one of the world's largest producers of ferroalloy's, output and exports of ferroalloy fell due to an armed conflict between government forces and pro-Russian separatists in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in the East since June 2014.
The conflict has also contributed to a steep economic contraction and sweeping restrictions of trade with Russia, once a major destination to Ukraine's exports.
Ukraine's third-largest ferroalloy maker Stakhanov Ferroalloy Plant, which is in the Lugansk region, has been idle since July 2014 due to the conflict. The plant is capable of producing 200,000 mt/year of ferroalloy.
