Only in the last week of March, the cost of electricity for industrial enterprises of Ukraine grew by 35%. The manufacturers themselves have called this phenomenon “contrary to all economic indicators.” But experts believe that the increase in the cost of electricity for industry is nothing but a diversion.
The fact that Ukraine significantly increased the electricity use in the industrial sector, was surprised and alarmed Industrialists themselves – amid falling energy prices (oil and gas) in the world, this phenomenon in Ukraine is, at least, absurd. To blame for the current situation of NEK “Ukrenergo”, which restricted the import of electric power NNEGC “Energoatom” unilaterally limit the supply of electric power sold by PSO-obligations and NKREKP, adding additional peak hour, which led to a price rise of 10%. But the MP from the faction “servant of the people”, Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on issues of economic development Dmitry Kisilevskiy have already named the situation as “sabotage”, according to the Facts ICTV.
According to the MP, currently consumers pay for electricity is 35% more than it was in the summer when he launched the electricity market. And industrial enterprises are the last Bastion before the complete stop of the economy
“Is sabotage against the Ukrainian industry” – said Kisilevsky.
It should be noted that the Ukrainian Industrialists now say that rising electricity prices will suffer huge losses.
