DONETSK (Sputnik) — The self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) is suspending all coal deliveries to Kiev-controlled territories in Ukraine, DPR Transport Minister Semen Kuzmenko said Tuesday.

"We are suspending all coal deliveries to Ukraine <…> As far as I am concerned, the talks have come to a dead end, the situation is likely to worsen," Kuzmenko told RIA Novosti.

The minister added that the move was prompted "primarily by economic reasons."
