Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko told what he would have discussed at the meeting of the National Security and Defense Council if he had been invited here. He commented on this on Facebook.
Thus, Lutsenko believes that such problems as de-oligarchization, supplies of Russian gas, illegal gas extraction by private regional gas companies, and the Russian oil embargo on Ukraine.
“Speaking about de-oligarhization seriously then finally, it is necessary to add to the draft state budget the rent for the extraction of coal and ore the same way as there is rent for the extraction of gas,” Lutsenko said.
Prosecutor General is convinced that it can become the source of social aid to miners.
Lutsenko notes that Russia has accumulated large volumes of gas in the European repositories for EU consumption, and plans to block the Ukrainian gas pipeline. He believes that Ukraine would not have enough of its own volumes of gas to maintain pressure in the gas transportation system. An additional 3 billion cubic meters are needed to import gas. Under these circumstances, it is urgently necessary to abolish the decision of the Cabinet of Minister to withdraw 90% of revenues of Naftogaz.
The illegal gas extraction by private regional gas companies equals up to 5 billion this year. By the end of the year, the amount of robbery could reach up to 10 billion cubic meters. Obviously, it is necessary not only to hope for actions from NABU but also to finally deprive the status of those oligarch systems as the gas supplier to the people, according to Lutsenko.
Prosecutor General believes that during the Russian oil embargo, Ukraine should finally transfer the integral property PrykarpatZakhidtrans Company to the state administration by virtue of the long-approved sanctions against Russian Rosneft Oil Company.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has approved the new members of the National Security and Defense Council.
