Blackie noted that in 2014 Ukraine produced about 20 million tons of coal in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. “And now we can say that the Russian Federation, not having its own resources – and because of the sanctions, and because of the need to make large expenditures on the military-industrial complex, and some of the problems in Syria – logistical and financial – trying to find a way to Finance themselves temporarily occupied territory”, – said the Minister.
