The State Service of Geology and Subsoil of Ukraine has stopped the special licenses to use subsoil at DTEK Sverdlovskantrazit, DTEK Rovenkiantrazit and DTEK Komsomolets Donbassa, seized by the Russia-supported militants, until the antiterrorist operation is over.
The licenses have been stopped based on the letters of the above-mentioned companies.
On March 15, DTEK announced the loss of control over all of its enterprises on the Ukraine-uncontrolled territory of Donbass.
In 2011-2013 these three companies mined 17-19 million tons of coal per year. (Ukrainian metal)
