Ukraine is increasing imports of Russian coal, the largest consumer of which is a company owned by Rinat Akhmetov where Poroshenko is a shareholder.
For three months of 2019, the share of imports of hard coal and anthracite from the Russian Federation in Ukraine reached 64.45%. This is evidenced by the data of the State Fiscal Service.
According to the State Fiscal Service, in the first quarter of this year, Ukraine imported coal from the Russian Federation amounting 476.9 million USD. The share of imports reached 64.45%.
Recall that the current President loudly prohibits trade with Russia. But as you can see, this is only an attempt to pull the wool over the people’s eyes. It is known, that the largest consumer of coal is Akhmetov’s energy holding DTEK, where Poroshenko has shares, so this trade is only to his advantage.
At the same time, the guarantor “forgot” that Putin is an invader, about which he himself repeatedly told while and opposing himself to the President of the Russian Federation. Such are the double standards of Poroshenko when his business with Putin is beneficial to him.
At the same time, over the same period, more than 212.5 million USD worth of coal was imported from the USA. The share of imports was 28.72%. This is much less than from Russia, but the USA blindly continues to support Poroshenko. What President promised to the United States I exchange for this support and what happens if it loses? After the second round of the election, all cards will be revealed.
