The decision of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on reducing the cost of gas for Luganskaya TPP is allowed to avoid rolling blackouts in the Luhansk region

This was stated by former Minister of energy, head of all-Ukrainian energy Assembly Ivan Plachkov, the Agency Ukrainian news.

“This decision will save the region from rolling blackouts. The region is working in isolation rail to deliver from Ukraine to the station coal, no, and from Russia the opportunity to supply coal anymore. The only option for stations working on gas. To ensure that power flows from other regions is impossible, after so many years, it was necessary to intensify the construction of the line 330, which is designed and built. So the only out – gas. But the cost of gas is high, the rates of the national Commission do not provide a break-even operation of the station, and the Cabinet of Ministers decided to reduce the cost of gas for this power station so that the station worked without losses. Profits there is no will. This is the absolutely correct response to the emergency situation in the Luhansk region”, — said Ivan Plachkov.

In his opinion, the recent media criticism of the government’s decision are no more than political speculation.

“When you start to discuss why the government took this decision to reduce gas prices for Lugansk TPP is speculation, it is a dishonest PR, ruthless against the millions of Ukrainian citizens in Lugansk region, who could be left without electricity”, — said Ivan Plachkov.

Energoekspert stressed that the current emergency situation in Luhansk region is not connected with the problems of the station. “The problem is not the station, it is Ukraine’s problem, it needs to be solved at the government level and the government solve it”, — said Ivan Plachkov.
