Parliamentary Caucus of Yulia Tymoshenko's Batkivshchyna political party acts the way, which can be explained as the support of Rinat Akhmetov. This was reported by Strana.ua.
Particularly, the political party joined the criticism of the idea of importing electricity from Belorussia and Russia to Ukraine through bilateral treaties.
The appropriate changes to the law about the Electricity Market were voted for on September 18. Recommends to the legislation No. 1084 were proposed by Head of the Energy Committee Andriy Herus.
The Head's initiative was criticized be factions of the European Solidarity and the Batkivshchyna political parties for two reasons: the first is the danger for the energy security of Ukraine and the second is cheap electricity from the Russian Federation is advantageous for big industrial customers, and first of all for ferroalloy plants and the ferroalloy business is the sphere of interests of Ihor Kolomoysky.
