Ukraine wants to expand steel exports on top of a crucial grain-export agreement as a way to support economy battered by Russia’s war, Economy Minister Yuliia Svyrydenko said in an interview. 

The cabinet minister called for building on the deal brokered last July by the United Nations and Turkey, which opened three Ukrainian Black Sea ports that had been blockaded by Russian forces for food exports to alleviate the global market.
