The head of the Ukrainian " Energoatom " has made the initiative to turn off the power in LNR and DND
Electricity-controlled militia part of the Donbass should be turned off, said the head of Ukrainian state enterprise NNEGC " Energoatom " Yuriy Nedashkovsky.
" at present, the power is supplied to the zone, which is captured by the separatists, and from this place the charges are not paid. Here it is necessary that the state had made a decision. I think we should disable this region in order not to generate a hole of non-payment. For us it is also the lack of money, " said Nedashkovsky, UNIAN reports. Nedashkovsky also said that the lack of payment for the organization due to exchange rate difference this year will be more than UAH 1 billion. NNEGC " Energoatom " - the largest manufacturer of electricity in Ukraine With a share of the total production of more than 50% of the total electricity production of the country. The company is the operator of all existing nuclear power plants in Ukraine. Remember, at the end of September 2014 power Lugansk addressed the population and management of factories in the city With a petition to reduce the use of electricity in connection With the problem of acute shortage of power supplied to consumers of electricity. From October 1, Ukraine stopped the export of electricity to Belarus. Last week the Minister of energy and coal industry of Ukraine Yuriy Prodan said that Ukraine does not have enough coal To produce 30% of electricity. According to his statement, 155 mines in Ukraine 83 mines are on the square occupied by the militia, 7 mines destroyed completely." so, there is not enough coal To produce 30% of electricity, " said he. In September the Ministry of energy of Ukraine has decided to turn off the electricity in the country in the evenings due to the scarcity of fuel and hydro resources in the United energy system of Ukraine. As stated before, the coal shortage threatens to leave Ukraine without electricity. The fighting in the East has led to a sharp decline in coal production - and it serves as a source of fuel For power plants, giving the lion's share of Ukrainian electricity. With a sharp shortage of electricity will face not only the Donetsk and Lugansk, but most other Ukrainian regions.
