Both ordinary Ukrainians and gas-supplying companies will experience demonopolization of the gas market – Voitsitska

We have adopted a bill on the gas market that creates transparent conditions of natural gas delivery from the producer companies to the end consumers.

This was reported by deputy of the “Samopomich” faction, Secretary of the Committee on Fuel and Energy Complex Viktoriia Voitsitska.

This allows removing the monopoly of regional gas companies controlled by oligarchs such as Dmytro Firtash.

“This monopoly for Ukrainians has resulted in overestimation of the amount of the allegedly consumed gas, in requisitions for connection to and usage of the gas networks,” she said.

The MP also noted the importance of the amendments introduced in the process of voting for the law.

“In particular, the amendment that returns to the state what the state actually owns – the gas network. And now the regional gas companies will have to pay for the use of gas distribution networks,” explained Voitsitska.

In addition, the bill will let strengthen the energy independence of Ukraine, by providing the European companies with the access to the Ukrainian gas market.
