Ukraine prolongs emergency measures because of anthracite lack

The Ukrainian Cabinet prolonged the energy emergency measures again because of the anthracite lack.

“The Decree on temporary measures on the energy market, any objections? The Decree is adopted,” said Groisman at the government’s assembly.

Herewith he didn’t specified the terms of the emergency measures prolonged.  

From February 17 2017, the energy emergency measures were established because of the Donbass coal supply blockade on the part of the Ukrainian radicals. The measures were prolonged on one month in March. It should be underlined that Ukraine is planning to substitute Donbass anthracite with the imported Southern Africa’s coal. According to the Ukrainian Energy Ministry’s Head Igor Nasalik, the majority of the Ukrainian electro generating enterprises started the preparation to the coal importing from the Republic of South Africa.
