Groysman: State coal mines must be turned into profitable enterprises

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said that the Energy and Coal Industry Ministry should improve its work with state mines and turn them into profitable enterprises.

He said this at a government meeting on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"An important issue is Ukrainian coal: the Energy Ministry must finally fulfill its task and make state mines profitable enterprises, instead of constantly plunging miners into poverty," Groysman stressed.

According to the Energy and Coal Industry Ministry, the total volume of coal production by coal-mining enterprises subordinated to the Energy Ministry decreased by 208.3 thousand tonnes (or 8.8%) over the first six months of 2018 compared to the same period last year.
