From November 1, Russia will stop deliveries of thermal coal to Ukraine, said the head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Energy and Housing and Utilities Andriy Gerus. Earlier, according to him, such coal was imported into the country by the companies DTEK, Donbassenergo and Tekhnova.
“From November 1, the Russian Federation stops deliveries of thermal coal to Ukraine. We are talking about grade A (anthracite) and P (lean) coals. Such coal was imported by DTEK (Luganskaya TPP, Krivorozhskaya TPP), Donbasenergo (Slavyanskaya TPP) and Technova (Darnitskaya TPP, Sumskaya TPP, Chernigovskaya TPP). According to market participants, the ban does not apply to coking coal, but only applies to coal used for energy needs, ”Mr. Gerus wrote in his Telegram channel.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine plans to import Russian electricity from November 1. All available 2,200 MW interstate capacity in the Russia-Ukraine direction is eight companies.
Ukraine started importing electricity from Russia in the fall of 2019 after a four-year hiatus. In April 2020, imports stopped due to the pandemic. At the beginning of 2021, Ukraine resumed imports, but stopped it again in May.
