The Trade Union of Metallurgists and Miners of Ukraine (PMGU) announced a critical situation at the state enterprise "Directorate of the Krivoy Rog mining and processing plant of oxidized ores." According to PMGU, the enterprise, which is subordinate to the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine, has not received sufficient funding from the state budget over the past five years and, as a result, found itself on the brink of survival.
“The constant lack of funds has caused a crisis. Against the background of regular increases in electricity tariffs, fuel and consumables prices, the company is constantly on the brink of survival. At the moment, most of its structural divisions have been liquidated, "says open letter of the Chairman of the Trade Union of Metallurgists and Miners of Ukraine Ryabko A.I. addressed to the Prime Minister Shmygal D.A.
The situation at the enterprise is critically aggravated by the fact that the prospect of the termination of the activities of the State Enterprise "Directorate of KGOKOR" endangers the technological and environmental safety of the city of Dolinskaya Kirovograd region, since, in addition to its main function (preservation and protection of the infrastructure of the mining and processing plant of oxidized ores) , the company is the only manufacturer of water supply and sanitation services in this settlement.
In his letter, Ryabko A.I. reasonably informs the Prime Minister of the need for additional financing of the State Enterprise "Directorate of KGOKOR" in the amount of UAH 7.3 million, because only the allocation of the necessary funds will allow the company to continue its activities, pay salaries to employees on time and ensure the environmental safety of Dolinskaya.
