The illegal “DPR” faction is going to close the only mine in Kalininsky district of Donetsk as the demand for the coal which is mined there is low. About 800 people work there currently.

Enterprises which are registered in Ukraine and did not re-register on the territory which is controlled by the illegal “DPR” grouping still work in occupied Donetsk and pay taxes to the Ukrainian budget.
