KIEV, May 7. /TASS/. Miners from the Volyn region in north-western Ukraine have blocked a bridge across the Western Bug River demanding their back wages, the head of the Independent Trade Union of Coal Miners of Ukraine wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday.
"They haven’t received salaries for the past four months," Mikhail Volynets wroted. He said miners from Novovolynskaya 10 coalmine are set to continue protests until they get their wages and due financing is ensured from the state budget.
Novovolynskaya 10 is the country’s only coal mine under construction. Its estimated yearly capacity is 0.9 million tons of coal with stores estimated at 37.8 million tons of coal.
In February, Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Vladimir Demchishin asked Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk to envisage in the state budget finance to complete construction of the mine.
