There's a chance that Avdiivka coke plant, which survived numerous artillery and mortar attacks, will shut down. The reason is that the enterprise is running out of raw material stocks, CEO Musa Magomedov posted on Facebook.

According to him, the stocks of sulphuric acid will run empty in no more than a week. This will lead the enterprise to a forced halt of production. The CEO pointed out it felt quite weird because this situation occurred due to the Ukrainian suppliers.  

'They tell us they don't have enough wagon cars... Our trader, Torgservis company, was supposed to bring us 1,080 tons of sulphuric acid, but they only brought 60, which is five percent from what they offered initially', Magomedov wrote.

The CEO of Avdiivka coke plant stressed that the Economy Ministry is trying to limit the imports of sulphuric acid to Ukraine. 'It is absolutely obvious that we cannot hold without the imports. What do we do in this kind of situation? We've got mass coke production for the city, which depends on this production - as well as metallurgy plants, which simply cannot work without our coke', he wrote.
