Ukraine’s Energy Ministry has no need or intention to buy coal from the South Africa in 2016. Minister Ihor Nasalyk said this in an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Given the conditions and opportunities for us in this area, we don’t need any more coal from the South Africa. As of today, we’ve got a technology scheme that allows us saving domestic coal. Besides, with enough coal stored, we will be able to easily survive low temperatures in winter”, the official said.
