The coordinator of the headquarters of “blockade of trade with the occupants” and the Second Commander of the “Donbas” battalion Anatoliy Vynhorodsky called militants’ threat to seize Ukrainian enterprises a robbery attempt, reports ІnfoResist.
“I don’t give a damn about their statements. To nationalize something, you need to be at least a nation or a state. Who are Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky? This is not a nationalization, it’s just robbery,” he said.
Militants have too much coal and they cannot sell it that’s why they started to make ultimatums.
“They don’t know what to do because nobody except for Ukraine needs that coal. Russia is shutting its market and they are in panic. Coal sale gave them living money, and now they don’t have it. So they try to pressure us through Akhmetov. But I don’t care about Akhmetov and their fairy tales. I think that goes for Ukrainian people too,” Vynhorodsky said.
“They try to pressure us, but they won’t succeed,” he added.
At the same time he said that there were no Ukrainian enterprises on the occupied territories, everyone who works there are cooperating with the occupants.
“The blockade headquarters have a point of view on this matter: the occupants cannot stop the coal supplies, as we were the ones who stopped it, volunteers and activists,” Vynhorodsky said.
Earlier it was reported that militants demand to lift Donbas blockade, threatening to seize Ukrainian enterprises. “DPR” and “LPR” also threaten to stop coal supplies to Ukraine.
