DONETSK, October 11. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has enough coal to live through the coming winter, the DPR’s Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko told reporters on Saturday.
“What we have managed to produce and store is sufficient to live through two winters, as we are a coal-producing region,” he said, adding the region was facing a more complicated situation with the electricity.
“We have two heat stations, but one of them is supplying electricity to the territory, occupied by the enemy. At the same time, the enemy controls another heat station, which supplies electricity to us. We are doing something now to restructure our energy sources for supplies of electricity to us exclusively.”
The prime minister also said about a certain deficit of cash in the republic.
“We would like to have Russian rouble in our territory, but we cannot do so as yet, thus as yet we are most likely to have a multi-currency zone with both rouble and hryvnias. Thus, we should be able to compensate for a certain deficit of the Ukrainian currency.”
The republic’s government has taken a decision earlier to organise own national bank.
