Vladimir Putin tosses coal to the Ukraine.

He revoked an informal ban on its exports to the country.

After the Ukraine has put one of the four undermined power lines into operation, providing electricity to the Crimea, Vladimir Putin has instructed the RF Ministry of Energy to resume the supply of coal into the country. In late November sources of "the Kommersant" in the industry stated about limiting exports of energy coal to the Ukraine, but the ban was not officially recognized. This involves not only the export from the Russian Federation, but also the supply of coal from the Donbas not controlled by Kiev.
