“It happened despite the decision of the parliament, despite the predicted balance approved by the Energy Ministry and despite the dozen of units of the Ukrainian thermal power stations and CHP plants that forcibly stay on standby,” the MP reported.
According to Buimyster, today, the payment for electrical energy import makes less than a million of hryvnias ($36,078.22). Totally, since the beginning of the year, Ukraine has paid 955 million hryvnias ($34,454,700.10) for corruptive import from Russia and Belarus.
“Almost three weeks have passed since the Verkhovna Rada voted for provision to the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission of Ukraine with authorities to ban import; however, the regulator sodden in the corruption scandal has not even started the preparation for the ban of supplies,” the MP noted.
In April 2020, Ukraine canceled auctions that distribute the capacity of interstate ties with Russia and Belarus during the quarantine.
On March 6, it was reported that in 2022, Ukraine plans to separate its energy system from Russia and Belarus. It is noted that joining ENTSO-E will also provide demonopolization of the electricity market in Ukraine.
