The head of DNR Zakharchenko made an important and strong statement about the economic blockade of Donbass
Ukraine is unlikely to cope with the blockade of coal supplies from Donbass, which she herself organized. This opinion was expressed by the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk national Republic Alexander Zakharchenko.
The head of the DND said that the Eastern regions
beyond the control of Kiev, the siege will survive, but whether cope with the blockade itself
Ukraine – the big question. “A couple of weeks of the blockade, and the Ukraine may
then forget about heating and energy in General,” – said Zakharchenko.
A day earlier, February 15, the government of Ukraine adopted
the decision on introduction of emergency measures in the energy sector in connection with the blockade of supply
coal from Donbass. Recall that the Ukrainian radicals organized a blockade of freight
with the regions of Donetsk and Luhansk regions not controlled by Kiev
My concern about this fact already stated by the President
Of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. He admits that the blockade can seriously
hit the Ukrainian economy. In particular, Kiev may lose around 2 billion
dollars of foreign exchange earnings.
Criticism of the organizers of the blockade broke and the oligarch
Sergey Taruta. In his opinion, if the supply of coal from DNR and LNR territory
Ukraine will not be renewed in the near future, this may lead to stop
power of the country.
