Recall that in early November, Kiev has imposed sanctions against 18 Russian companies “for carrying out actions that could harm interests of national economic security.”

Their number includes the coal company “Oztrans”. The representative of the southern coal company, which includes “YugTrans” said RBC that the sanctions will become an obstacle for marketing of anthracite coal. According to him, difficulties arise with the redistribution of exports, as the “southern ports clogged with coal from self-proclaimed L/DNR”.

“YugTrans” engaged in the supply of anthracite coal for several Ukrainian companies, including “Donbasenergo”. According to the interlocutor of RBC, the company has supplied around 70-80 thousand tons of coal to Ukraine. Coal was mined in the mines in the Rostov region.
