PJSC UMCC does not supply its raw materials to Crimean companies owned by Dmytro Firtash
21.04.2017Recently, some Ukrainian mass media published inaccurate information about supplies of ilmenite concentrate by PJSC UMCC subsidiaries to CJSC Crimean Titan owned by Dmytro Firtash to Crimea allegedly to help him go around the current sanctions. The author of the articles Aleksey Altynov, substantiating his opinion, referred to an article of the Russian publication Vedomosti of March 21, 2017. We would like to inform you of the following on this matter:
Over the time of its operation on the titanium market, PJSC United Mining and Chemical Company never supplied and does not have plans to supply its products to Crimean companies owned by this businessmen in the future, or any other companies located at the temporarily occupied territory.
Our company provides services of processing raw materials produced by Firtash’es companies Mezhyrichensk Mining and Concentration Complex and Valki Ilmenite. We do not know where the processed products are supplied to. However, our company has no relation to supplies to Crimea.
“We are hoping that it is professional negligence of the author and not political reasons behind these publications. None of the UMCC’s companies shipped their products to the companies located on the territory of the annexed Crimea or temporarily occupied territories. That is why we call on mass media to stop spreading inaccurate information and thoroughly check facts published in mass media of the aggressor – country, as such publications inflict harm not only on UMCC’s image, but on the image of Ukraine as an exporter in general,” comments PJSC UMCC Acting Chairman of the Board Oleksandr Gladushko.
