‘We can liquidate the anthracite coal addiction for 2 – 2.5 years’, he clarified and added that 40% of fuel, provided not from RF, but from another firm, have been diversified for today.

‘We completed Feasibility study, all works are carrying out and literally at this Cabinet of Ministers session the financial plan will be affirmed.
