          Energy welfare of Ukraine will last nedelcovici Kiev to block the supply of the Donetsk coal in Europe will fail

          Ukraine seeks new ways to undermine the economy of the republics of Novorossiya and for the sake of trying to prove that Russia supplied to Europe, the coal is actually mined in the Donbass. Consequently, supplies of it are, from the point of view of Ukraine, are illegal. And it really is possible to prove technically. Whether Europe will go in this matter towards Kiev?

          Russia sells Europe coal that was mined in DND and LNR, said Deputy Minister of Ukraine on refugees Georgy Tuka in the air of the Fifth channel. This, says Tuka, you need to fight, however, there are purely technical difficulties.

          “Each field has its specific differences in chemical composition. But the fact that the Donbass coal basin is located on the border of two States and some mines located in the Rostov region, in fact, have identical chemical composition. So you need to consult with the Ministry of energy, will we be able through the implementation of chemical analyses to prove the identity of place of origin of coal,” – said Ukrainian official.

          Tuck proposed to monitor coal on the documents on which it is sold. “If, for example, this coal is sold on the documents in the Kuznetsk coal basin, it is very easy for you to explore. If will be issued for the mine in Rostov, it will be more difficult, but I don’t think it is impossible,” added Tuck.

          The chemical composition can really understand where he mined coal. However, Ukraine does not prevent the DNI and the LC to sell their coal to third countries, albeit under the guise of Russian.

          “Buyers can ask the seller a certificate of chemical analysis of coal. And these characteristics can roughly understand where mined the coal. But this information is not mandatory, but only if the consumer himself asks her,” says leading expert of the national energy security Fund, lecturer of Financial University Igor Yushkov.

          Apparently, Kiev wants to make this procedure compulsory, and to force the Europeans to do the analysis and to issue such certificates. Now it makes the seller, that is Russia. However, experts do not believe that the Europeans for the sake of Ukraine will create problems for yourself with the purchase of coal.

          “As a rule, the seller provides a handful of coal for analysis in the laboratory. If to oblige the Europeans to conduct such tests, the circuit will be exactly the same – manufacturer will provide a handful of coal for analysis in the European laboratories. But the whole amount of coal in a wagon or ship to check still does not work. It is technically difficult to do in this scale, and it will seriously slow down delivery time. To change the entire market for coal of Ukraine, no one will” – said Yushkov.

          In addition, a single party can be mixed coal mined in different regions, such as Donbass from the Rostov.

          “95% of the chemical parameters (ash, moisture, sulfur), it is clear which region got the coal. But to legally prove ownership of the coal or other mine for chemical analysis is still impossible”, – said the member of the Supervisory Board of the Institute of energy strategies (Ukraine) Yuri Korolchuk.

          According to him, a certificate of chemical analysis in court will not work as an argument for the sale and purchase of the Donbass coal. The judge will require other evidence. “The car is red with a 2 liter engine – this is not proof, the judge will require a machine room and coal room there,” – says Korolchuk.

          Theoretically, says the expert, Ukraine could in the country to prove his innocence in court and to impose sanctions on Russian and on the European and Turkish companies that also buy Russian coal. In the end, and the Ukrainian DTEK, carrying coal from Russia, can be accused of buying coal from DPR and LPR. “But I don’t believe that I will go to court and sanctions,” – says Korolchuk.

          European buyers will go to such measures just in case they will be obliged to this by the European Commission. “In Ukraine there is no such authority, and something threatening she can’t, because she depends on Europe,” said Yushkov. In June, the Ministry of energy of Ukraine has already sent a letter to the foreign Ministry, which was asked to make recommendations to the eight countries on how to distinguish a Russian coal from the Donbass, but neither the EC nor Turkey no trading rules have not changed.

          Statement tookie is an attempt to maintain the internal background that Ukraine is struggling with coal supplies from Donbas under the guise of Russian coal, but can not do anything, said Korolchuk. Yushkov also considers this statement as a PR campaign.

          After the blockade of Donbas, Ukraine itself can not buy the Donbass anthracite, and is forced to seek it in South Africa and the USA. But it cost the Ukrainian economy two to three times more expensive than Donbass. But the EU and Turkey are not opposed to this conflict to profit.

          However, now the prices of all hydrocarbons and so low – oil, gas, and coal. This causes an increase in consumption in Europe. “The coal market is old and well established. If there is a possibility to buy cheap coal, the Europeans are actively using it. The EU buys a lot of Russian coal, and there is no politicization. Turkey also buys a lot from us,” said Yushkov.

          The Ministry of energy expect coal exports from Russia this year will grow by 10 million tonnes or 6%, compared with the year 2016, and will reach 175 million tons. While only Russia produced last year, 385 million tons of coal.

          While Europe rejoices at the opportunity to buy cheap coal, Ukraine, on the contrary, forced to overpay for him. Thus, according to Ukrainian media, the first batch of American anthracite coal will cost Ukraine $ 113 per ton. South African coal comes at $ 100 per ton. While private Ukrainian company DTEK buys coal in Russia for 95 dollars per ton, and lost because of the blockade of Donbass cost about $ 50 per ton.
