MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. Authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) have resumed supplies of coal to Kiev, with up to 15,000 tons expected to be sent per day, an official at the local administration said on Thursday.
"After Ukraine partially lifted Crimea’s energy blockade, the DPR authorities decided to resume coal supplies to Ukraine," Eduard Polyakov, the acting head of the industrial development strategy department of the DPR's administration, told the Donetsk news agency.
The official said the coal will be first of all shipped to the thermal power plants in Ukraine’s central regions. "This is done to decrease the burden of Ukraine’s electric power plants supplying energy to Crimea."
The DPR authorities imposed an embargo on coal deliveries to Ukraine on November 27. The measure was expected to be in force for at least two weeks. DPR leader Alexander Zakharchenko said Donbas could resume coal deliveries to Ukraine if it restored electric power supplies to Crimea.
Ukraine recently partially resumed electricity supplies to Crimea via the Kakhovskaya-Titan power line on December 8.
