However, this mission may now include pushing to expand the capacity of an already outdated and deadly Ukrainian coal plant: the Burshtyn power station -- a move that is risky, unnecessary, and would allow the companies involved to skirt EU pollution requirements. USTDA maintains that the power generated at Burshtyn will go to the national grid, thus benefiting Ukrainians.
