Earlier, miners stopped the strike and rose to the surface at the Nadiya mine, Lviv region, the press service of the Ministry of Energy reported.

The department said that the best way to pay off the debt to the miners has been found - through amendments to the law on the state budget.

It is noted that the funds will be paid, and the people who brought the enterprise to the crisis will answer according to the law, the department noted. The Ministry of Energy has already transferred the audit materials testifying to violations to law enforcement agencies for further investigation.
