Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Energy, Housing and Utility Services Andriy Herus says Russia will cease thermal coal supplies to Ukraine from November 1, 2021.
That’s according to the MP’s post on Telegram, seen by Ukrinform.
“From November 1, the Russian Federation will suspend thermal coal supplies to Ukraine. These are A (anthracite) and L (lean) coal. Such coal was imported by DTEK (Luhansk TPP, Kryvyi Rih TPP), Donbasenergo (Slovianska TPP), and Technova (Darnytska CHPP, Sumy CHPP, and Chernihiv CHPP),” wrote Herus.
If confirmed, this will certainly not help with relations between Ukraine and Russia with winter coming.

Knowing that dipshit he might try to make coal exports to Ukraine part of the “infrastructure” bill.

West Virginia Coal is Bituminous not Anthracite coal. The two types of coal are so different that you have to use different furnaces when burning one or the other. The Ukraine burns mostly Anthracite, mined from the Eastern Ukraine, Russia or Eastern Pennsylvania. Thus Manchin will not fight to ship West Virginian coal to the Ukraine.

In the US we divide Bituminous coal into Thermal, used mostly to generate electricity, and metallurgical coal, used to make Iron and steel.
Russia appears to use different definitions of Bituminous coal. Russia breaks its Bitmuminous coal into six sub grades:
2. lean caking
3. coking (Metallurgical coal)
6. long flame.
Lean coal is close to anthracite but technically still a Bituminous coal.
Thus it is hard to find replacement coal for these coals. World wide supply of Bituminous coal exists, but not Anthracite nor “Lean” coal.
