Anzhela Marchuk: Steel worker

Both Anzhela Marchuk and her husband work in the steel yards at AcelorMittal in Kryviy Rih in central Ukraine.

AcelorMittal says their aim is to reduce the number of staff to a fraction of those employed there when they bought the plant in 2005.

Workers like Anzhela worry about what the future holds, especially as inflation means the cost of living is rising sharply.
