Part of the export coal from the DPR and LPR may well be consumed by Turkey, and not in the future, but now. 

Such an assumption was expressed by Sergey Nazarov, the deputy head of the Ministry of Economic Development, who heads the interdepartmental commission for humanitarian assistance to the Donbass republics, in an interview with Rambler News Service. 

‘The DPR and LPR are exporting their coal to third countries, perhaps Turkey is one of them. Coal supplies are not exported to Russia, Russia has no need for coal,’ Nazarov said. 

After in early March, against the background of the «blockade by Ukrainian patriots», supplies of anthracite from the DPR and the LPR to Ukraine were cut off, the coal enterprises of the People's Republics were reoriented to the Russian market.
