On June 4, Ukraine's Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister Natalia Mykolska was on a working visit to the United States of America. The main topic of the planned bilateral meetings is the exclusion of Ukrainian metallurgical products from the U.S.-imposed restrictive measures. The Ukraine's trade representative will hold meetings with representatives of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Department of State and Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

As Ukrinform reported, on March 23, 2018, the U.S. introduced an additional duty of 25% on imports of certain types of steel products in order to protect the U.S. domestic market.
