Ukraine Buys Coal From South Africa After Mines Ruined

Ukraine signed an agreement to buy 1 million metric tons of coal from South Africa to maintain power output after mining was disrupted from armed conflict with separatist rebels in the country’s east.

The first batch is being loaded in a port, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said at a government meeting today, without giving more details. Companies are arranging purchases, he said.
