Coal accounts for 42 percent of the electricity that is
produced at 14 thermal electricity stations and for almost all of heat. Spurred
by Kremlin-backed regular Russian troops and proxies, the
armed conflict in Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts where 70 percent of the nation’s
coal is produced has put the area’s capacity to generate electricity at risk.

Half the Donbas region’s 115 coal have closed, leaving only 35 of the remaining working,
Independent Union of Miners head Maksym Volynets told the Kyiv Post in
September. Central in the region is DTEK.

Purchasing coal
from South Africa and Russia could help, thinks Tymchenko. The average price
for South African coal stands at $95 per ton, according to Evgen Dubogryz,
analyst at Case Ukraine, a research center. Russian coal is slightly cheaper
and costs $85 per ton.
