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.
