COAL MINING on DONBASS | UKRAINE

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

During their peak in the 1970's, the coal mines of the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine produced upwards of 200 million tons of coal per year.  Production declined modestly in the 1980's, then (for a variety of reasons) collapsed in the years following the dissolution of the USSR in the early 1990's; Ukraine's coal production now languishes at around 40 million tons per year.  In this drone video by AirVuz contributor boma.story, you'll get an aerial view of the environmental legacy left by the once-mighty coal industry here.
