The Cabinet of Ministers lifted the ban on the export of hard coal, anthracite, briquettes, pellets and similar types of solid fuel obtained from hard coal.

This was reported by the representative of the government in the Verkhovna Rada Taras Melnychuk.

The coal export limit is set at 1.15 million tons in 2024.

The reason for lifting the ban is the need to ensure the operation of state-owned coal mining enterprises and the sale of thermal coal for export, the message says.

  • The export of a number of energy resources, in particular gas, coal and fuel oil, was banned in June 2022. Thanks to the ban, Ukraine was able to go through the winter of 2022-2023 without importing coal, the Ministry of Energy said.
