In Ukraine came into force law No. 2513-VIII reallocation of funds in the state budget for 2018 to allocate 1,4 billion UAH to pay salaries to miners.
Document changes the name of the program “support to the implementation of the market of electric energy” on such “State support of coal mining enterprises for partial coverage of cost of finished marketable coal products”.
Thus parliamentarians sent 1.4 billion to support the coal industry.
Recall, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted this law in July of 2018 after protests by miners from-for debts on payment of wages.
The Ministry of energy and coal industry of Ukraine said that he would try to repay the arrears of wages of miners until 26 August 2018.
