Ukraine suspends coal and gas exports in an effort to exert pressure on the European Union and the United States for the supply of sophisticated weapons.
President Zeelensky of Ukraine has halted winter coal and gas exports.
According to a report by an international news agency, Ukrainian President Zelensky has announced the cessation of coal and gas exports. It will be a difficult winter, so the export will be halted.
The Ukrainian president did not specify the duration of the ban.
Earlier, Prime Minister Denis Schmeigel stated that Ukraine's state-owned coal production had decreased by a third since the end of February, and that "Ukraine's most difficult heating season. "Be ready for. "
The government has tasked the state-owned oil and gas company Naftogaz with storing at least 19 billion cubic metres of gas underground in Ukraine.
According to Schmigl, Ukraine finished the last heating season with 9 billion cubic metres of gas remaining in its reserves, and as of June 1 had 10 billion cubic metres of gas.
Analysts assert that it is an attempt to exert pressure on the European Union and the United States regarding the supply of sophisticated weapons. The Russian president has already warned the European Union and the United States that he will order his forces to attack other targets if they supply Ukraine with long-range missiles. Although he has not explained what objectives he had in mind. However, everyone understands what he is saying.
