'DPR', 'LPR' leaders demand Kyiv to stop transport blockade of occupied Donbas

'DPR', 'LPR' leaders demand Kyiv to stop transport blockade of occupied DonbasThe so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics promised to establish external management on enterprises of Ukrainian jurisdiction and to stop coal supplies to Ukraine if Kyiv does not stop transport blockade of Donetsk by March. This was declared by the leaders of “DPR” and “LPR” Alexander Zakharchenko and Ihor Plotnitsky, an information agency of the militants' reports.

“We are forced to declare that if the blockade is not lifted by Wednesday 00:00 (March 1, 2017), we will establish external management on enterprises of Ukrainian jurisdiction that work in “DPR” and “LPR”. We will stop coal supplies to Ukraine. We do not have both opportunities and payment scheme. We will be rebuilding all manufacture processes and orient them for the Russian market and for other countries,” the militants stated.

Economic blockade of the territories beyond the control of Ukraine, conducted by activists of the “Headquarters of trade blockade against the invaders,” has been going for a month, and it is gradually becoming a key factor in Ukrainian politics. After cutting off the railroads, used for delivering the strategically important resource, anthracite coal, from the Donbas mines to Ukrainian power plants and thermal power plants, the blockade has new challenges for country's energy independence, illegal enrichment schemes, and the fate of people who would primarily suffer from shut-down of companies.
