“If our government, the new leadership of the state President and the Parliament and the Cabinet will not join forces, we can face the fact that there are limitations of supply of electricity to companies and they stop. Will simply rolling blackouts, without warning. Innocent people get hurt. Can occur another threat is the collapse of the energy system, as blocks of thermal power plants have the unique ability of the regulatory capabilities of the nuclear power stations we can’t regulate”, — he stressed.

“Let’s start with the coal industry and will come to pricing, because it is a question of possibility of paying salaries to miners and some financial and economic condition of the mines at the moment”, — said Volynets.
As reported, on August 19 the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky held a meeting with representatives of the Cabinet of Ministers and relevant agencies on the situation in the electricity market. The President’s representative in the Cabinet of Ministers Andrei Gerus noted the unsatisfactory preparation for the heating season in mid — August, the amount of coal in storage was 40% less than last year’s inventory.
According to information released editor-in-chief the Internet-editions “Censor” Yuri Butusov, in the course of the meeting the President found that the lowest price for imported coal is determined by the formula “Rotterdam +” — 1740 UAH/t, which is abolished as of 1 July this year.
Investigation of economic feasibility “Rotterdam +” is the National anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU). But coal from USA, South Africa and Colombia are much more expensive from 1800 UAH/ton. In turn, according to the official report of the state generating company “Tsentrenergo”, she plans to purchase 350 tons of coal from the Russian Federation at the price of 1970 UAH per ton from an intermediary company “Oil Force”.
According to media reports, the company “Oil Force” refers to an informal group “Privat” Igor Kolomoisky.
