Today, Deputy Energy Minister of Ukraine Maksim Nemchinov, together with people's deputies, held a meeting with representatives of trade unions, Lviv Regional State Administration (RSA) and the management of Nadezhda Mine CJSC to resolve the issue of wage arrears and payments for electricity.
By According to the press service of the Ministry of Energy, today, joint work with MPs, in particular with MP Yuri Kamelchuk, continues on a bill on amendments to the State Budget for 2021 in order to pay off the specified debt.
The Ministry will hold negotiations with the oblenergo on the resumption of power supply to check the condition of the underground part of the Nadezhda mine and restore coal production.
Part of the funds from the production activities of the enterprise will be used to pay off debts. A plan to make such payments from the mine is expected in the near future.
As noted in the Ministry of Energy, the State Budget for 2021 provides for 100% financing of measures to prepare the mine for liquidation.
The salary debts of the mine are 36 million hryvnia and 13.6 million hryvnia for electricity. Today, production activities at the mine are suspended.
Recall that at the end of 2020, the Nadezhda mine was planned to be turned into the first industrial museum in Ukraine within the framework of the so-called "transformation" of the country's coal regions. And last week, the Novovolynsk authorities submitted an application to the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation in order to receive funds for the creation of a virtual museum of mines. According to preliminary estimates, the project budget will amount to more than UAH 600 thousand.
