TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Prices are higher for products that the Zaporizhstal plant makes, and they’re harder to get to customers that used to span the globe.

VERBATIM: Efforts to restore production and get goods moving again to customers worldwide will be crucial to helping Ukraine rebuild.

Workers brave not only the intense heat from blast furnaces forging steel but the threat of shelling.
