The people’s Deputy Alexey Goncharenko: “After strong growth of imports of Russian electricity, domestic thermal power plants and mines were facing the threat of closure”
Importing electricity from Russia, which became possible because of “amendments Gems”, we are financing the economy of the aggressor country and feed the Russian power engineers and miners instead.
This was stated by people’s Deputy of Ukraine Alexey Goncharenko.
The MP drew attention that, due to strong growth of imports of Russian electricity, domestic thermal power plants and mines were facing the threat of closure. And stressed by importing the current Ukraine actually is financing the aggressor country through energy.
“The threat is absolutely real, the whole story of the import of electricity from Russia looks like treason, so I went to investigated this situation, I expect a response. The fact that today Ukraine actually feeds the aggressor through energy, it looks not just strange, but absolutely unacceptable. It is not only an economic issue, but a matter of state security. Gerus and Kolomoisky put Ukraine on the electric chair,” – said Goncharenko.
In addition, in his opinion, the growth of electricity imports from Russia will lead to negative social consequences, so it must be stopped as quickly as possible.
“Today Ukraine is in order to feed his miners and engineers – Russian feeds. This has social implications for those regions, is very wrong. It must be solved as quickly as possible,” – said Goncharenko.
We will remind, on October 11 the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said he did not know that the adopted on the initiative of the Gerus of the amendments to the law on nuclear energy led to the recovery of commercial imports of electricity from Russia. The President noted that it is necessary to understand the import of electricity from Russia.
Earlier, the leaders of energy companies appealed to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky with a request to stop the import of Russian electricity, noting that the import of cheap DC with Russia and Belarus destroys Ukrainian energy and coal industry and threatening the country’s energy independence and national security.
