Coal from the occupied areas in Donbas is legally shipped to consumers in Ukraine.

"Coal from the uncontrolled territories has been officially shipped to Ukraine, to government-controlled areas and it’s being used to generate electricity for us. I emphasize that there are plenty of people, hundreds of thousands, who are in some manner tied and pay taxes, and the enterprises that pay the military tax to Ukraine," the minister noted.
