Earlier, in 2017 the capital’s authority decided to terminate cooperation with Kyivenergo, which was transferred to a new enterprise Kievteploenergo. In April, the representatives of Kyivenergo stated that all the staff will switch over to Kievteploenergo.
It was expected that the municipal enterprise will receivables and payables of the company. However, on July 19 Kyiv Commercial Court refused to change Kyivenergo to Kievteploenergo as a respondent concerning Kyivenergo’s debts.
In its turn, Naftogaz stopped gas supply in Kyiv due to Kyivenergo’s debts, which make almost $178,5 million. Due to these debts Naftogaz refuses to sign the contract with Kievteploenergo on gas supply with the result that hot water supply in Kyiv was switched off.
