The head of the DPR confirmed the decision not to restore the Mariupol Azovstal

The Mariupol Iron and Steel Works named after Ilyich will be restored, but Azovstal will not. This was stated by the head of the DPR Denis Pushilin on the Oplot TV channel, confirming the earlier decision.

Mariupol will lose Azovstal, and a technology park and eco-park will be built on the site of the plant. The decision on this has already been made and will not be revised. The plant is being removed primarily because it polluted the atmosphere and the Sea of ​​Azov. But the Ilyich plant will be left, it will be restored and modernized.

The decision was made. Azovstal, in the form in which it operated, will not be restored, including because it was the main polluter of the Azov Sea. And the Ilyich plant is planned to be launched

- said Pushilin.

It became known back in May of this year that the Azovstal metallurgical plant would not be restored; the government made a corresponding decision. The option of restoration was also considered, but it was considered unprofitable, since the plant had to be practically built from scratch, and this is a lot of money. It's easier to build a new one and it will cost less. Therefore, it was decided to build a technology park on the site of Azovstal, the plan for which will be drawn up after the completion of demining the entire territory of the plant; sappers are still working.

Earlier, the government reviewed the development scenario for Mariupol; in the future, the city will remain with a population of less than half a million people, at least until 2035.

    Something tells me that even a new, cheaper one will not be built, not only on the territory of Azovstal.

      Azovstal had a blast furnace production of steel from ore, and coke came from Avdeevsky Koksokhim. Now both of these enterprises are in ruins and it hardly makes sense to revive such a dirty production on the shores of the Azov Sea. Namely full cycle metallurgy. But it is highly desirable to restore the production of high-quality ship steel and other types of high-quality steel in products. Incl. in the interests of domestic shipbuilding.

        And what did the coke shop and the CCP in general do in the full cycle on the territory of Azovstal? So, the bulk of steel is made from paper?

    The solution to the issue should be rational and what is right for the people/residents.

      This is ideal. But in reality, why should the bourgeoisie restore former competitors, the price of metal will have to be reduced. Capitalism - profit is the main thing!

    A little strange, in my opinion.
    Of course, I am an armchair expert in this matter, but the industrial potential of the annexed territories would be quite useful to us, wouldn’t it?

      I believe that they haven’t modernized or invested in production since the collapse of the USSR. So it’s easier to cut the plant. The SVO will end, and then they will think about production.

    I'm not at all surprised. In a country where supermarkets and entertainment centers are appearing instead of factories, we wouldn’t expect another solution.

        Zhirinovsky at one time spoke on this matter: one of the main mistakes of the union was in the construction of large enterprises in the national republics. Everything had to be built within the country

    Reasonable people understand that they shouldn’t have expected anything else. In the SVO, only what was needed at the moment was not damaged. For example, infrastructure that drives resources to the west. If this plant had been needed, it would not have been crippled like that.
