‘I asked the Prime Minister to procure all the necessary information about tariffs, and he promised that responsible ministers will be present at the parliament’s session today. They will explain the structure and formula of the new tariffs. I reckon it’s going to be the major topic of discussion today’, the parliamentary speaker said.
The question time is now under way; it will last till 11 a.m. (Kyiv time).
Since July 5, several Ukrainian parties and some non-partisan MPs have been blocking both the rostrum and the presidium of the parliament, demanding to cut the tariffs and to create the temporary investigation commission on the issue.
The decision to change social tariffs for public utilities in Ukraine is made by the independent authority – the National Commission on Regulation of Energy and Public Utilities.
