DONETSK, December 29. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s statement about Ukraine’s readiness to buy coal from eastern Ukrainian Donbas territories beyond its control is the first step towards economic cooperation between Kiev and Donetsk, speaker of the People’s Council of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Andrei Purgin said on Monday.
“So far, it is too early to speak about trade in coal between Kiev and Donetsk. There are a lot of issues to be settled. We have always said we are ready to sit down at a negotiating table with Kiev on economic matters. Warfare, politics and market are different things. We are ready to look at economic cooperation with Kiev. Today’s statement by Poroshenko is the first step towards economic cooperation between Kiev and Donetsk,” he told the Donetsk news agency.
Earlier on Monday, Petro Poroshenko said Ukraine’s authorities were ready to buy coal from territories in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, that are beyond their control.
“We will buy (coal) from state-run enterprises, including those that produce coal in territories we do not control,” he said, adding that Kiev would buy coal in Donbas in case the money earned from these sales were paid to coal miners as wages.
