The debt to the miners

This was announced by Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Vladimir Demchishin January 29 at the session of the Verkhovna Rada.

«The budget of Ukraine for 2016 is planned 500 mln. UAH. for the elimination of arrears of wages, of which 50 mln. was paid in January. The bulk of the debt agreed to pay off in February. I am convinced that the debt to the miners, accumulated in November and December 2015, will be paid even if there are some difficulties with liquidity. It will take place in February and March, "- said Vladimir Demchishin.

It was also said that the Ministry will use all possibilities to prevent the increase of the debt. Attention was drawn to the fact that more than 1 billion UAH allocated in 2015 for the coal industry. Unlike previous years, when the industry received about 5 billion. UAH.

The Minister also added that there are certain contractual obligations of large coal consumers. For example, the company "DTEK" is a debtor for coal worth more than 200 mln. UAH.
