The number of operating state coalmines in Ukraine has decreased.
“Last year we finished the process of shutting down 5 state mines”, the minister of energy and coal industry Igor Nasalik said.
He also named the mines, which coped with the coal output targets.
“These are the Yuzhnodonbasskaya No. 1, the mine named after Sugray, Toretskugol, Lvivugol and Nadezhda mine”, he said.
According to him, the modernization of state coal enterprises will make them profitable.
Last year investments in coal industry totaled 247.9 million UAH, up 4-fold from 2015. (Ukrainian metal)
