In conditions of a worsening economic situation in the coal sector of Ukraine, DTEK and the trade union have decided to create a working group on the provision of social protections for coalminers.

“In conditions in which the production and financial plan of the Ukrainian energy market for 2013 has not been approved, we don’t know how much fuel the country’s power plants will need. The warehouses of thermal power plants are overloaded with coal. In addition, today DTEK is subsidizing a monthly gap of around UAH 2 billion in payments to Energomarket linked to the debts of large state consumers. Nevertheless, we’ll continue providing for all the social guarantees,” the press service said, citing DTEK CEO Maksym Tymchenko.

In turn, the Trade Union of Coal Industry Workers said that DTEK is ready for a dialog and it focuses attention to the problems of illegal coal extraction.
