KIEV, December 30. /TASS/. Grade A and T thermal coal can be purchased only in the areas controlled by militias, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Tuesday.
“One of the possible decisions in that state mines are reregistered in Kiev, exclusively in banks that are under control of Kiev. Coal is paid for after delivery,” he said.
Money for the deliveries will be transferred to cards of miners, who work in territories of Donbas that are beyond control of Kiev, Yatsenyuk said.
“Now the Energy and Coal Ministry is working on it. I want the minister to tell the people what has been done as soon as corresponding decisions are taken,” he said.
On December 29, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Ukraine’s authorities are 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 would be paid to coal miners as wages.
