Ukrainian chemical plant “Dniproazot” indefinitely stopped work due to high gas prices for industrial consumers. Also a third of Kiev a month sitting without hot water, and “Naftogaz” blackmailing the government shutdown of 16 areas. The “gas question” was again one of the most acute in Ukraine, and this time – without direct accusations against Russia.
As acknowledged in the Facebook Chairman of the Board Sergey Sidorov, the plant is 100% ready for production, has a lot of plans and production tasks, social obligations to the region and the country. But despite this, he was forced to stop on June 15.
“The company that for eight decades has created a name for itself, which has always been encouragement and support to the city and provided a stable income of workers, completely stopped,” – said the Chairman of the Board.
According to him, the loss of stops will be huge this year. So, more than 4 thousand employees of the plant transferred to two-thirds of the salary. Under threat is also the beginning of the heating season in Dneprodzerzhinsk (renamed Kiev in Kamenka).
Sidorov acknowledged that “the policy of the state, coupled with external market factors, which is imposed on the Ukrainian chemists have created all the prerequisites that our chemistry on the brink of destruction”.
In this case, “DneprAzot” is included in the list of enterprises having strategic importance for economy and security of Ukraine. The factory was established in may, 1938. It produced ammonia, urea, caustic soda, liquid chlorine, hydrochloric acid and other products.
The price of gas was the subject of another threat that was voiced by “Naftogaz of Ukraine”. The head of “Naftogaz” Andrey KOBOLEV wrote a letter to the Prime Minister of the country Vladimir Groysman, which actually gave me an ultimatum. He has threatened to switch off gas supply from 16 regions of Ukraine (129 towns), if the price of gas for end consumers will not provide a fee for the use of networks of “Naftogaz”.
We are talking about those plans that were voiced in early 2017 and was temporarily delayed, namely https://www.nakanune.ru/news/2017/04/05/22466036/” rel=”nofollow”>the introduction of a license fee for the right to use gas, i.e. pay not only gas as a commodity, but also its transportation. It is noteworthy that the “constitutional” argument in its favor of “Naftogaz” refers to the desire to make a profit.
“Approach, in which only the state as the owner has the opportunity to profit, and other owners, is a violation of the constitutional principle of equality of all forms of ownership”, the letter said KOBOLEV.
In addition, because of the “Naftogaz” already a month about one-third of residents of Kiev do not have hot water. So believe in city hall. The reason was the “war” of the city authorities with “Naftogaz”. From may 1, 2018 heat network under the management of PJSC “Kyivenergo” Rinat Akhmetov, were transferred to KP “Kievteploenergo”. “Naftogaz” refuses to sign agreement on gas supply with “Kievteploenergo”, while he will not take on debt “Kyivenergo” – about 5 billion hryvnia (more than 10 billion rubles). In this case, the Kyiv city Council banned “Kievteploenergo” accept debentures of the company “Kyivenergo”.
In the administration of Kiev said that from August 1 the entire city could be left without hot water and with the beginning of the heating season without heat. The mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko said that he is going to challenge in court the debt “Kyivenergo” before “Naftogaz”. In turn, the head of Board of “Naftogaz” called Klitschko on live debates.
“Stop hiding behind the minions. You were once a brave man. Not sure, but was”, – said the Korolev.
Meanwhile, according to the adviser of the mayor of Kiev Dmitry Belotserkovets, city “continues to fight for energy independence” and the demand for boilers among residents this year increased almost two times, noted in a trading network Comfy.
