The situation at the Nadezhda 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 from the crisis situation the miners are in. About this announced at the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine on Thursday evening.
The Ministry initiated a special meeting with the participation of representatives of the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Finance to promptly resolve the issue.
Like it was noted , the government intends to allocate money from the state reserve fund to pay off wage arrears to miners in the amount of more than 50 million hryvnia, which should 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 returnable 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 "Kalushskaya CHP-NOVA" on the allocation of payments to the mine "Nadezhda" in the amount of 8.7 million hryvnia for coal products. The funds have already been transferred to the mine's accounts and used to pay salaries.
In addition, the Ministry sent the results of a financial audit of the enterprise to bring to justice the former managers of the Nadezhda mine, who brought it to such a state.
The interests of miners in criminal proceedings will be represented by the adviser to the acting Minister of Energy Alexander Trokhimets.
