Ukraine to Increase Coal Output This Year, Minister Boyko Says
Ukraine will increase coal output this year by about 8 percent compared with 2010, said Yuriy Boyko, coal and energy minister.
Miners may raise production by 4.5 million to 5 million metric tons, Boyko told reporters today at a weekly government meeting in the capital, Kiev. He didn’t give total production figures for either this year or last. Coal output was 75.2 million tons last year, according to Energy and Coal Ministry data.
