“If a political decision at the state level to block [the occupied territory] and is no longer any exchange of goods, Ukraine has enough resources to fully withdraw from the anthracite [coal]. But you have to understand that $ 15 billion of additional funds. And you need to understand to whom the ball will be? That is, this $ 15 billion will be on the economy and consumers,” said Igor Nasalik.
