In Ukraine, by the end of November, Naftogaz will complete work on concluding gas supply contracts with budget organizations that are heated by autonomous boilers and cannot start the heating season due to high gas prices, Chairman of the Board of Naftogaz of Ukraine Yuriy Vitrenko declared at the seventh Ukrainian gas forum, 112ua.tv reports.
"Hundreds and thousands of documents are being processed, there are 41 lines in the call center. "We are quite optimistic that Naftogaz will have agreements with all budget organizations by the end of November," Vitrenko said.
Ukraine can't start the heating season because of the high prices for gas for a number of the budgetary organizations. In particular, the heating season did not start in three educational institutions of Ternopil due to gas shortage.The heating is planned to be launched after signing agreements with the gas supply company Naftogaz Trading LLC.
In Chernihiv, all objects of the budget sphere terminated contracts with gas suppliers due to a significant increase in its cost.
In addition, the heating season in nine educational institutions in Zhytomyr did not start on time due to the unresolved situation on the gas market. And in Poltava three youth sports schools are still not heated.
Problems with heating exist in Khmelnytsky as well. The heating season has not started yet in 20 institutions of the budget sphere. The reason for this is the lack of natural gas.
