Ukrainian Miners Struggle For Economic Survival


Ukraine's eastern region of Luhansk has been shaken by a separatist conflict -- and so has the local economy. The town of Hirske, located in government-controlled territory, depends on a coal mine for most of its jobs, but major investments are needed for the operation to continue. With clashes continuing just a few kilometers away, the mine and locals' livelihoods hang in the balance. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
