Jastrzębie Coal Mine


The mine, which opened in 1962, was located partly in Jastrzębie Zdrój and partly in Mszana. In 1963, it was merged with the Moszczenica Coal Mine, creating a Jastrzębie-Moszczenica Coal Mine. It existed for three years. In 1966, the mines were separated, and their previous names were restored. In 1994, the mines were reconnected and incorporated into the Jas-Mos Coal Mine as Ruch Moszczenica Coal Mine. In 2000, Ruch Moszczenica Coal Mine ceased operations, and the currently operating Jas-Mos Coal Mine is part of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa.

29.37 kilometers – at the time of writing this report, separating Kramatorsk, the temporary capital of the Donetsk Oblast, from the front line. One third of the 220,000 inhabitants remained. In the deserted city you can see mostly soldiers. They head to the front or return from it to rest for a while. The fate of Kramatorsk and eastern Ukraine depends on the outcome of fierce fighting. Military trucks and heavy equipment rush to nearby Bakhmut every day.
