Today, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine turned down Yuzgaz B.V. company in the Yuzivska gas field project. Samopomich Union faction deputy, Secretary of the Committee on Fuel and Energy Complex, Viktoriia Voitsitska, believes that under the disguise of legality of the election of the investor for Yuzivska gas field, there were attempts to pull another scheme of theft of natural resources.
The lawmaker has repeatedly appealed to the government to verify the legality of the competition because after the announcement of the winner “Nadra Yuzivska” Ltd sent to the Cabinet of Ministers a request to review the conditions of Yuzivska Agreement regarding reduction of initial obligations – from the current $410 million to $200 million, as well as to secure the consent for the transfer of rights and obligations of an investor company to “Yuzgaz B.V.”.
“This decision is an affirmation that public competitions must be extremely transparent and legal, with no secrets and secret negotiations. We are tired of the fact that oligarchs, who do not care about Ukraine and its people, always make money from public funds and projects. We can put an end to it through systematic cooperation and perseverance. This decision of the government means that we have great potential for further cooperation of the executive and legislative branches of government,” says Viktoriia Voitsitska.
