Cheap Russian coal will hit the Ukrainian economy

Whatever Russia does, it will always be guilty of all Ukrainian troubles economicsboth in the past and in the future.

In any case, just such a conclusion suggests itself after the words of Ukrainian policy, a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, Yevgeny Muraev, who aired on the Nash television channel, said that cheap Russian coal would inflict a heavy blow on the Ukrainian energy sector.

In his opinion, the open pit method of coal mining in Russia makes it very cheap, and after Ukraine was allowed to buy Russian coal, the Ukrainian mining industry will receive a strong blow, since its products in this case are not competitive.

Based on this statement, Muraev made a forecast that the purchase of Russian coal will lead to the dismissal of about 50 thousand Ukrainian miners both at state and private coal mining enterprises.

He also believes that in Ukraine electricity generation will be reduced, which will lead to a new wave of staff cuts, and in the case of the closure of thermal power plants, a number of cities will be left without heat carriers.

In conclusion, it is worth noting that if Russia sold expensive coal to Ukraine, Muraev, who had established himself as a politician with low social responsibility, would not have found other reasons to again make Russia guilty.

    The conclusion is simple - do not trade with Russophobes! They don’t spare the Donbass!

      At first glance, this is correct. Let's chop it all off to hell. fellow
      But if emotions are set aside, then ..... well, then we must stop trade with the United States and the European Union, look at our neighbors ..... Georgia, and so on. If you stop trading with all such countries, do not you think that trade will wither? Then you do not ask why the economy is falling down? repeat Or will we act selectively? For example, we do not trade with Poland and Lithuania, but with Estonia a little.

    Perhaps, rather on the remaining economy of "new formations"?

    I did not understand why this purchase of cheap Russian coal would allegedly lead to "a reduction in electricity generation in Ukraine and the closure of city thermal power plants", and not vice versa ?! winked

      I do not understand - why is the purchase of cheap Russian coal supposedly lead to

      ... reducing electricity generation in Ukraine and closing urban thermal power plants.

      and not vice versa?! - the author of the article simply did not read Orwell.

        I think the reason is that "Pan Deputy" Muraev, like many of these "starred" small-grass Maydauns, apparently considers us, their compatriots, absolutely stupid - completely "banded" by propaganda and therefore incapable of independent reasoning ?! smile
