Natural Gas Europe: A Growing Deficit of Coal in Ukraine
http://www.naturalgaseurope.com/growing-deficit-coal-ukraine

Because Ukraine doesn't control its large industrial and natural resource 
base in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, it will 
have to source its winter coal requirements in the form of exports.

The monthly requirements are (in thousands):
September: 987
October 1,205
November: 1,235
December: 1,245

THis will be another drain on FX reserves, and a substantial increase in 
the twin deficits of trade and budget, things that maintain Ukraine on its 
downward economic trajectory.
