KIEV (Reuters) - Steelmaking and rolling at Ukraine’s largest steel mill, owned by ArcelorMittal (MT.AS), have been completely stopped due to a strike by workers in its railway division, the mill said on Thursday.

It said only 14 locomotives out of 92 are in operation and the whole chain of operations has been paralysed.

“If the situation is not resolved soon, production will be completely stopped and it will take much time and colossal resources to recover it,” it said in a statement.
