Ukraine accuses Russia of reducing coal deliveries as tensions rise

Piles of coal wait to be loaded into trucksUkraine on Friday accused Russia of reducing its coal deliveries to Kiev in a move that could further ratchet up tensions with Moscow. “Coal deliveries from the territories that are not under our control and from Russia have been reduced,” Ukrainian Energy Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn told parliament, referring to the eastern parts of the country that are controlled by pro-Russian separatists. The latest rise in tensions between Kiev and Moscow follows Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak’s threat on Tuesday to suspend coal supplies to Kiev after explosions on power lines coming from Ukrainian territory left the Russian-annexed Crimean peninsula without electricity.
