“We demand that the conditions put forward by the miners be fulfilled. Our activists are inside the Parus business center now, right near the entrance of DTEK’s office. Andriy Illenko and other people’s deputies are with them,” Svoboda parliamentary faction MP Yuriy Syrotiuk told Interfax-Ukraine.
As reported, a group of 12 miners of Chervony Partyzan coalmine seized the office of the coalmine’s director on January 10 in order to put forward their demands to the owner of DTEK energy holding, Rinat Akhmetov, and Luhansk region Governor Volodymyr Prystiuk.
The miners that seized the coalmine director’s office demanded that DTEK Sverdlovantracit’s head cancel an instruction to change the enterprise’s form of organization. According to them, the implementation of the instruction may result in mass layoffs.
