It is noted that a continuous supply of coal to American company will allow a fully operational power plant Centrenergo, which in turn will provide a stable autumn-winter heating season in 2017-2018.

In particular, the United States will supply Ukraine coal, nuclear fuel and at the same time oppose the construction of politicized Russian gas pipeline “Nord stream-2,” which Russia plans to supply gas to Europe bypassing Ukraine.
