How to bury a billion rubles: DPR wants to restructure coal mining

34

Source: donbasstoday.ru


In especially large ...


In the DPR, 1 billion rubles were allocated from the budget for "measures to restructure the coal industry of the DPR for 2021–2022." What exactly is hidden behind this streamlined word is unclear - the text of the resolution has not been published. Probably, the restructuring, which was talked about last summer, means the supposed stop of production at all unprofitable mines, partial repayment of debts, etc.

The goals declared by official sources (stabilization of the coal industry, cost optimization, modernization and technical re-equipment of the mine fund) will require not a billion, but tens of billions of rubles. The government admitted that
“More than 70% of all state mines have been operating without reconstruction for over 30 years. The stable operation of the coal industry is limited by the technical condition of the main and auxiliary mining equipment, the renewal of which requires large amounts of investment. "

“Big” is a very mild word. Rather, gigantic, if not impossible.

Unfortunately, after 23 years of Ukrainian rule, three years of work in Ukraine under the formal subordination of the LPNR, and another three years under the strict guidance of Vneshtorgservis, the industry has suffered critical damage from which it is unlikely to recover. In any case, to begin with, it would be nice to resolve the issue with VTS.

Gordian knot


Investments in the extractive industry are important and necessary. The question is that for a start it would be nice to resolve the issue with the accursed Vneshtorgservis CJSC, which, having lost control over the mines, still continues to control a number of metallurgical enterprises in the republic. Until now, the question of paying off the wage arrears to the miners, accumulated by the management of "VTS", remains open. It is doubtful that the republics, in general, are able to collect these funds from Vneshtorgservis. But someone can?

Moreover, before investing in the industry, it would be nice to conduct a thorough audit with the involvement of independent Russian experts in order to assess the consequences of external management and give a real assessment of the structure's activities. Including legal. Otherwise, it will turn out that Donetsk to some extent covers from the budget the consequences of someone else's mismanagement. Until the Gordian BTC knot is severed, investment in externally managed businesses looks premature. However, what exactly they plan to spend this billion on, the government is in no hurry to disclose, so conclusions can only be made hypothetical.

Incompatible with life


Sadly, "restructuring", which means stopping unprofitable enterprises and cutting all possible costs, is inevitable. There are many reasons for this - the mining of "light" coal with a shallow depth of occurrence ceased back in the 70s-80s of the last century. Today, a ton of coal cost about $ 100-140. Profitable mining can be only provided that the mining industry closely interacts with the energy and metallurgy, which, in turn, will cover the needs of the local engineering industry, profitably exporting products and meeting the needs of local miners and metallurgists. Unfortunately, it is impossible to establish such a chain in the LPNR until the situation at metallurgical enterprises changes.

This is the secret of the profitability of Akhmetov's mines - he just controls the power industry, mines, metallurgical enterprises and the port. In addition, he receives huge subsidies from the budget and enjoys unprecedented benefits. Thanks to the same subsidies, the rest of the mines survived, which received profits by buying up coal from kopanks (enterprises for illegal coal mining by open-pit or underground methods), instead of extracting it, they mixed the rock, etc. But subsidies are a thing of the past.

Purely theoretically, if we carry out a strict inventory and audit, cut costs as much as possible and invest tens of billions of rubles in the industry, it would be possible to achieve the well-organized operation of the entire industrial complex and trade not in coal and metal, but in products and mechanisms. But first, you need to put things in order in the LPR. And not only to disperse those who rob businesses, but also to get them to compensate for losses.

Otherwise, you can just as well bury this billion rubles in the ground or throw it into a pit - the effect will be almost equal.

    And so it was intended. They just want to steal this billion under a plausible pretext. There are no ideological leaders in the republican leadership; there are exactly the same officials and businessmen as on the other side of the front. And the goal is the same - to plunder and screw. And you say - the island of socialism.

        Thank you Elena! It was your comment that was waiting for this article .. And then they are brainwashed here clearly ..
        I also read and believed about socialism in Novorossiya, but then the shooting of the leaders began, and now you don’t understand .. Who is that, but I hope. Maybe, first, you can end the Banderaites, and then build something, etc. soldier

        there was no socialism in the republics. It was rather anarchism. Of course, many people liked him (like the ideas of Batka Makhno to his followers), but from the point of view of state functioning as a system, he had no future. And building socialism in a single country has long been proven that this is stupidity. Pink dreams always break on harsh everyday life.

      Those who sit there in the leadership, without the will of the curators, cannot utter a word. So the curators are happy with this state of affairs. Most likely they have a very big deal from this. The same "vneshtorgservice" traded Donetsk minerals through Russia and according to Russian documents.

            But is profitability right now? With these shifts, they simply destroy families and throw hard workers on a large scale .. In the USSR, cities were built and new deposits were discovered .. There were no problems, for employment, and especially for miners. This was the most respected class of workers! Now managers like you are sneering and so on. ..Let's see who will take .. You are clearly not yours negative

    Interesting. Judging by the author's words, all these years in the territory of Donbass they were engaged in bringing the mines to an unprofitable state ...
    Then what was Ukraine basking in before the Maidan? The lack of what did they frighten Ukraine after the Maidan, and what should be closed now?
    After all, for thirty years, the only thing they did was that the mines were finished off and closed? !!!

      Igor, good afternoon hi ))
      It all started with the fact that in some miraculous way, since 2017, Vneshtorgservis CJSC has acquired great importance in the republics. This CJSC has officially become the external manager of the main industrial giants of Donbass. And it is headed by a fugitive Ukrainian oligarch, a young and arrogant Sergei Kurchenko, crushing all any significant industrial enterprises in the republics. The oligarch is acquired in Moscow, has a mansion on Rublevka, and rents premises in Moscow City as an office. So someone in our capital is strongly patronizing him.
      He does not pay anything to the republican budgets, only once he "allocated 150 million rubles for culture", raking in billions at the same time.
      And before the Maidan, Ukraine was warming itself with Donbass coal. After the Maidan, there was an attempt to purchase coal in South Africa, and then, apparently, under the guise of this purchase, coal from Donbass is being secretly purchased again. I don’t know how this is done, the rails were sort of disassembled.

        Yes, I know all this ... I do not live on a desert island. It just "jarred" as the author unrolled the Donbass - they say, they did nothing but shut it down. And the fact that there is now a gloom with work, so it is the visiting guest workers who tell firsthand ...

          Well, this is understandable, a guest worker is cheaper, because he is not a guest worker at all, but let's call it, as it should be, a strike breaker. It can be assumed that Kurchenko is in charge of sending Asians to the republics. Presumably, at the direction of high Moscow patrons who need "good neighborly ties" with the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. And these ties are sacrificed for the interests of the people of Donbass and Luhansk oblast.

          Well, they don't bring coal to Russia, do they? It seems to me that Kuzbass will be against it. Or are they selling it abroad under the guise of Russian?

            And who asks Kuzbass, Lyudmila? This is "sacred private property" - coal. Estessno, and sell it under the guise of anything, m. B. and Kuzbass. Look, in 2014, for the sake of Akhmetov, the already occupied Mariupol was handed over so that he (Akhmetov) could export his metallurgical products through the port. Business, nothing personal.

    The conflict in Donbass will continue until the old people die, and the young people themselves dump into Russia. As a result, the Banderlog will receive only land, which, in fact, they are openly seeking.
    The described situation is not new and it can still be broken with little bloodshed. Then, in the case of the integration of Donbas into Russia, this situation will be broken through the knee.
