The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine took the fateful for the population of the decision on gas tariffs
It became known that now the Cabinet has given its decision due to “Naftogaz” ability to reduce prices for gas for population.
The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting on may 8, reports “Interfax-Ukraine”:
“The tariff for gas for the population and Teplokommunenergo (CTV) is defined as the arithmetic average selling price Nakom gas for industrial customers — this happens on a prepayment basis with the purchase of a resource volume of more than 50 thousand cubic meters, operating in the month preceding the delivery month”, — referred to in the explanatory note to the document.
It is reported that the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has eliminated the legal conflict between norms of the two decrees, namely No. 867 from 2018 and No. 293 of March 2019 for the formation of gas prices for households and Teplokommunenergo (CTV).
Based on nowodworskiego document follows that given the gas prices for industrial consumers in April, (7,188 UAH/cubic meter, including VAT), as well as allowances for transportation and distribution – the final cost of gas in may, for a population of 8,247 thousand UAH for 1 thousand cubic meters Is 3.5% less than current costs since the autumn of last year (8,550 thousand UAH for 1 thousand cubic). Consequently, in may gas for Ukrainians may be significantly cheaper.
We will remind, the Chairman of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine Yury Terentyev called nonsense and outright lies statements by politicians about the monopoly of the company through the acquisition of shares of “Kievoblenergo” and “Odessaoblenergo”.
According to him, DTEK buys exclusively electric networks, not suppliers. This Terentiev said in a video interview Politeka.
“Acquired only a portion of the assets related to the activity of distribution system operator. That is, it is exclusively a network that does not in any way engaged in the supply of electric energy on the territory of Kyiv region on the territory of Odessa region. That is, the monopolization in this case, neither market is not happening “.
Chairman of the ACU said that power companies are natural monopolies in their respective territories. Their acquisition does not affect competition, because in this segment it is not and can not be. This is why the activity of natural monopolies is completely controlled by the appropriate government authorities, in particular, NKREKP through licensing conditions. “What has the power companies or the distribution system operator? This is the network that is within a certain territorial unit. This business is the so-called natural monopoly. That is, there is no economic sense of creating a new re-distribution of gas. Is a regulated market, which is in a state of natural monopoly a priori, 100%, always. And acquisition of one entity additional network in another region does not create monopolization of a particular national market, since these markets a priori territorial, and they don’t have plusvalia to each other, ” he said.
Recall, published the salary of the head of “Naftogaz” KOBOLEV.
As reported Politeka, who is of Ukrainian specialists can count on a big salary.
Also Politeka wrote that wages in Ukraine may reach the level of the European Union.
