Donetsk, Dec 15 - DAN. Donetsk People’s Republic authorities plan to begin to supply electricity to Russia, DPR Head Denis Pushilin said during the Direct Line call-in session with the Republic’s residents on Tuesday.

“Aside from providing electricity to the Donetsk People's Republic and partly Lugansk People’s Republic, we have more far reaching plans,” Pushilin said. “Of course, we would like - and we have it in our plans - to begin to supply electricity to the Russian Federation.”

This plan, if implemented, has certain fine points, but if successful, a whole chain of DPR companies will be involved in the process, including coal mines which will get coal supply orders etc. “So it’s very important to take a responsible approach to repairing our thermal power plants,” the DPR leader said.*jk
