The main mine fan of the state enterprise Yuzhnodonbasskoye Mine Group No. 1 has been switched off.
The main machinery for water pumping is also being shut down.
As a result, in several hours the lower horizon of the mine could be flooded, which could flood the nearby Mine named after Surgay.
Yuzhnodonbasskoye is one of the two coking coalmines in Ukraine. If it is flooded, it could halt by-product coke and metal industries.
The debts of Centreenergo and Gosuglesnabzhenie to the mine group amount to 189 million UAH, which exceeds the enterprise salary debts 2-fold.
At the same time, the enterprise owes 27.5 million UAH for electricity. (Ukrainian metal)
