All the employees of the liquidated mines promise to employ. When they begin to close, Goncharuk said.

The government intends to close unprofitable state mines, but promise to employ their employees. This was during the hour of questions to the Cabinet in the Verkhovna Rada on Friday, February 7, Prime Minister Alexey Goncharuk.

“We conducted an audit of all mines of national importance. 34, if I’m not mistaken. For each of them we evaluate the economic situation. Those mines where there is economic feasibility, they can theoretically compete, we will support as possible. Those mines that do not have economic decisions due to irresponsible management in the past dozen years, we will look for a possibility that no one there was left on the street”, – assured the Prime Minister.

Goncharuk said that due to the poor economic condition of the mines the coal that they produce – uncompetitive and mines unprofitable. In this regard, constantly arise and accumulate wage arrears to miners.

Recall that in mid-November last year to repay the debt to employees of eight state-owned mines was listed a billion hryvnia.

And the debts to miners listed 163 million.
