The United States and the European Union launched a real crusade against coal, said the head of Kemerovo region Aman Tuleyev during the announcement of the budget message in 2016. He noted that the price of fuel reached record low values.
The Governor of the Kemerovo region Aman Tuleyev has acted with the budgetary message for 2016, in which has told about difficulties, faced by the region. Because a significant contribution to the welfare of the region makes extraction of minerals, the distinctive attention was paid to the state of the coal industry of the region, and the situation with coal in General.
He outlined that the world is on the order of 150 million tons of coal more than it should. "Coal is not wanted. The overproduction. Explicitly state, in my own lifetime more difficult situation not seen. Don't forget the crisis of 2008? So it flowers in comparison with the current day. The cost of coal has almost returned to its 2003 level, and she falls, falls and falls", - quotes news Agency FalshSiberia Aman Tuleev.
However difficulties of the industry adds an information campaign of the West. "The United States and the European Union actually declared a crusade against coal. Adopt specialized laws to reduce coal generation, to ban its use in thermal power plants under the guise of caring for the environment. Not so long ago in Moscow was the French delegation that formally invited the Russian Federation is categorically to abandon coal as an energy source. In other words, strongly hammered that coal is a dirty fuel," - said the head of the Kemerovo region.
And yet, to despair the manufacturers of coal is not necessary, in his opinion. For example, should help the search for new markets. "Not to be lost, to work in manual mode on a daily basis, to seek new markets, to negotiate. The current situation should all be sober", - said Aman Tuleyev. According to him, mining companies in Kuzbass for 2015 will be 213 million tons of coal, which is 1% higher than in 2014.
