Illegal Coal Mines - Kopankas
Project info

Illegal coal mines in the Donbass area, kopankas, are one of the most important activities for the population in Torez and nearby villages. Despite the mines’ dangerous conditions, it hasn’t stopped others from being created in nearby areas as coal continues to be a vital resource since the days of the Soviet Union.
This hazardous activity continues today and provides for most of Donbass’ families.
