Evraz Output Up 1.1%

Steelmaker Evraz said Tuesday that crude steel output rose 1.1 percent in the second quarter, year-on-year, to 4.1 million tons.

Output was little-changed quarter on quarter, the company said.

The company, part-owned by billionaire Chelsea soccer club owner Roman Abramovich, said it produced 3.7 million tons of steel products, 3 percent more than in the same period of the previous year, partly due to the growth in demand for construction products in Russia.

"In [the third quarter], the company expects to increase output of steel products to meet the improved market demand in flat and tubular products," the firm said in a statement.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
