"LPR"-occupied enterprises have begun coal supply to Crimea, according to the leader of the Luhansk militants Igor Plotnitsky, as cited by the Kremlin-controlled media.

“We deliver it by rail through Rostov and by ferry. It is in this way at the point. As far as I know, a two-year contract has been concluded. These are real things that are already happening, and believe me, that this is just the beginning," Plotnitsky said.

The leader of the militants asserts that the "LPR" grouping intends to "deepen economic cooperation with the Crimean region."

Earlier, Plotnitsky announced the holding of a referendum on the annexation of the occupied Donbas to the Russian Federation.
