Rozenko has called the blockade of Donbass is meaningless
The participants of the trade blockade on Donbass began to block roads.
Blockade of energy supplies from the occupied Donbass – is meaningless, says Deputy Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko.
He said this on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
The official noted that such actions of participants of the block are extremely negative consequences for businesses located in the area of the ATO (Avdiivka coke) and in other regions.
“Few paid attention to the message that was 2-3 days ago that Avdiivka coke plant is a major budget revenue generating enterprise, one of the largest enterprises in the territory, which employs hundreds of people. It declared that as a result of the blockade they go on a five-day working day… It’s not attached (to the state of emergency – ed.). State of emergency – the consequences of this situation. And the reason is completely pointless, in my opinion, the blockade .
Second, Avdiivka coke declares that they are moving to a shorter working day and week is the threat of closure of the facility on the frontline. In what social situation is the whole city? Then Avdiivka coke immediately there is a threat of stop of the plants Mariupol, Zaporozhye plants, aluminum plants, in particular of Krivoy Rog. Here went the chain. And according to our data, in this complex there are more than 300 thousand Ukrainian workers,” – said Rozenko.
Today the participants of the trade blockade on Donbass began to block roads. It was noted that today was put up the first post near Zolote of the Luhansk region. In the near future it is planned to establish checkpoints on other highways.
We will remind, today, on February 16, the national security Council at the meeting considered the issues of neutralizing the threats to energy security of Ukraine. In particular, President Petro Poroshenko said the risks for the steel industry and the threat of declining foreign exchange earnings due to the blockade of Donbass.
At the same time the head of state promised to expand the list of goods prohibited through the contact line.
Now Donbass blocked three railway lines.
