Separatists from the so-called Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics are trying to sell coal from DTEK mines at half-price.
“We’re negotiating with our prospective customers who could buy our coal – Turkey, Spain. We consider it our coal, but stolen. When we left there were some 450 thousand tons of coal at Sverdlovantrazit and Rovenkiantrazit”, DTEK Enrego acting CEO Dmitry Sakharuk said.
According to him, Turkey could potentially become an active buyer of the illegal coal, as in Russia the separatists opportunities are limited.
“They are dropping the price considerably – by 30-50%. We’re working with this. Our task is to stop trading in our coal”, he said, adding that there were attempt to ship some 50 thousand tons per month to Turkey.
“The coal is in the port. They use the port of Rostov and small vessels. There is a contract with Spain for 30 thousand tons”, he noted. (Ukrainian metal)
