Acting Energy Minister Yuriy Boyko stated this at a briefing on November 26, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Yesterday the concept for reforming coal regions was sent to the government. In my opinion, this is a balanced approach to solve problems of coal regions. The implementation of this plan will allow a balanced and comprehensive solution to the problems that arise during the closure of mines, including social problems that arise in these regions,” he said.
As reported by Ukrinform, the draft concept for reforming the coal industry envisages the division of mines into three groups. The first group will include mines that are subject to integration with PJSC Centerenergo and are its resource base. The second will include dual-purpose mines, the sale of which is not limited exclusively to thermal generations. The third group will include the mines that will be offered for privatization not only as coal mining enterprises, but also as integral property complexes that can be used for other economic activities.
The Energy Ministry in cooperation with international partners is planning to launch pilot projects for the transformation of mines.
