Blockade in Donbas was organized to the benefit of Russia – PM

The blockade in Donbas was organized to the benefit of Russia.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman announced this at a press conference on the results of the government activity for the past year, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The blockade, which prevented access to Ukraine’s own mineral wealth, and I call it economic and energy blockade, was organized to the benefit of the Russian Federation. That was another qualitative special operation of the enemy on our territory," Groysman said.

At the same time, the Prime Minister noted that Ukraine now lacked coal and had to purchase it from different countries. "I advocate purchasing from the USA, Australia and other countries, which are not aggressors," he stressed.
