Accounts of state-owned enterprises, including those of the coal industry, are to be transferred to the state-owned banks. This was stated by deputy of the “Samopomich” Union faction, member of the Committee on Energy Lev Pidlisetskyi during a briefing.
“Having adopted the bill on support for the coal industry, we have taken an important step. But we want to remind about indicated in the coalition agreement our common commitment – to conduct complete restructuring and privatization of the coal industry,” said the MP.
According to the text of the coalition agreement, in 2015-2016 the government has to restructure, close those unprofitable and privatize the mines.
“Our faction asks not to forget about this intention, and also insists on a transparent appointment of the SOEs heads and on the funds of these enterprises to be transferred to the state-owned banks. To exclude cases when the funds for the miners’ salaries are steadfastly allocated, but they get trapped in a bank that cannot pay them out,” said Lev Pidlisetskyi.
