The Ministry of Energy of Ukraine said that the situation at Nadiya mine is unprecedented, since the state has nothing to do with the wage arrears accumulated at the enterprise and at the same time cannot stand aside of the crisis situation in which the miners find themselves.
The Ministry of Energy initiated a special meeting with the participation of representatives of the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Finance to promptly resolve the issue.
“As already noted, the funds must be allocated from the state reserve fund and must be returned by the end of the budget year. At the same time, it is necessary to choose an algorithm of actions that would allow the state to provide such repayable assistance in this case within the framework of the law.”
At the same time, the Ministry of Energy has already agreed with PJSC Centerenergo and SE Kalush CHP-NOVA on the allocation of payments to Nadiya mine in the amount of UAH 8.7 million for coal products. The funds have already been transferred to the mine's accounts and used to pay wages.
In addition, the Ministry sent the results of the financial audit of the enterprise to bring to justice the former managers of the mine, who brought it to such a state.
It is noted that the interests of the miners in criminal proceedings will be represented by the adviser acting Energy Minister Oleksandr Trokhymets.
