KIEV, February 10. /TASS/. Ukrainian radicals, including members of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (outlawed in Russia) have blocked the Yasinovataya-Konstantinovka railway in East Ukraine’s Donetsk Region.
"The blockade is carried out near the Fenolnaya station," the organizers said on their Facebook page.
Members of the so-called Ukrainian volunteer battalions, supported by a group of lawmakers, blocked cargo trains with coal from eastern Ukraine’s Lugansk Region on January 25. The right-wingers insist that one of the objectives of their effort is to stop the inflow of contraband allegedly getting into Ukrainian territory from the self-proclaimed Lugansk and Donetsk republics.
District police chief Vyacheslav Abroskin was quoted as saying by the media Tuesday rail traffic has resumed, but organizers rejected the reports, saying that lifting or easing the blockade was not discussed.
The Security Service of Ukraine condemned the move, describing it as "populist" and "unlawful." A criminal case was opened.
The country’s coal and energy minister warned that disrupted coal deliveries may result in blackouts all across the country.
