A working group was set up to remove the Udarnovskaya mine on Sakhalin from a crisis situation

The Governor of the Sakhalin Region, Alexander Khoroshavin, held a special meeting on getting the Udarnovskaya mine out of the crisis situation, where he made a decision to create a working group, which will form proposals for solving existing problematic issues at the enterprise by November 18.

The working group will include representatives of the regional ministries of finance, property and land relations, investment, economic development, the "Eastern mining company", owning the mine, as well as deputies of the Sakhalin Oblast Duma and lawyers. According to the Governor, at present an understanding has been reached that the company alone can not cope with the existing problems. "Udarnovskaya" has been unprofitable for several years already. The loss after a fire of new drilling equipment, as well as the complex geological structure of new layers, prevent the enterprise from achieving profitability. Workers, and here practically all the able-bodied population of Shakhtersk is employed, for a long time they do not receive wages.

- We are very seriously concerned about the current situation. We understand what a mine is for Shakhtersk and the entire Uglegorsk region. If there is no mine, there will be no city-forming enterprise, and as a result, there will be no work for people. There will be no sense in having a vocational school there, which graduates specialized specialists. The city will completely sit on the regional budget and will not produce anything. We intend to find a way out of the situation, - said Alexander Khoroshavin.

He added that today he met with the owner of the mine, who prepared his proposals for stabilizing the work of the enterprise. At the same time, third-party financial support is required in the amount of 700-800 million rubles. on 2014-2015 years. The regional authorities are ready to allocate funds. But for this it is necessary to determine the optimal forms of state support for the company. The working group formed on the instructions of the governor will also deal with the relevant issues.
