In an interview with reporters said the expert and the representative of the President in the Cabinet of Ministers Andriy Gerus, convey the Facts.ICTV.
According to him, the prices can sharply fly up for ordinary people immediately after the start of electricity market in Ukraine.
Andrew Gerus submits that the sharp rise in the cost of electricity can be the case if the state does not finalize until the end of the rules of the energy market, which should be launched on 1 July 2019.
“It was not undertaken no preparatory work in order to monopolize the market, so did the competition. When the two groups of companies have 90% of electricity generation, it is clear that they can agree among themselves, and set any price. The consequences can be very serious, and today they are not fully predictable”, — said the expert.
In addition, the representative of President Vladimir Zelensky government urged to postpone the launch of the energy market in Ukraine and noted that it is better “not to play such dangerous game.”

It is worth noting that the world Bank, EBRD, delegation of the European Union and the European investment Bank (EIB) in Ukraine also urged Ukraine to postpone the launch of the energy market.
