Death tolls from dangerous Ukrainian mines every year increase with the addition of those that die while on the job. Prayers for the ones left behind and curses on those that allow these 'murders' to continue year after year. news reports that a criminal case has been opened - will see what happens.

As long as we have stabilnist, we shouldn't expect safety, Luida.

Our coal mines will continue killing people, and the oligarchs will continue cashing in on the killer coal.
