A Ukrainian steelworks owned by billionaire Rinat Akhmetov accused Russia of taking its metal from Mariupol for resale back home and asked President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to sanction the “pirates.” A boat loaded with metal from the Ilyich Steelworks headed to the Russian port of Rostov-on-Don at the end of May, Metinvest Holding LLC said in a statement. About 145,000 tons of steel products were left in Mariupol, a port city occupied by Russia’s military. The company, Ukraine’s biggest steelmaker, didn’t say how much of its product was on that boat.
