People's Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada and the leader of the party "Osnova" Serhii Taruta believes that the activities of Andrii Kobolev at the head of "Naftogaz" demonstrates the complete incompetence of the current government.
This opinion was announces on air of channel "112 Ukraine".
"Now there is an absolutely incomprehensible situation with Kobolev and Vitrenko, who made the whole state dependent on their actions, and deliberately bring “Naftogaz” to bankruptcy. This is a crime. The Cabinet of Ministers should appoint people who will defend the interests of Ukraine to the governing bodies of this state company," the MP said.
The politician believes that the current high level of gas prices is unfair to citizens. They can be significantly reduced, and there are all opportunities for this, the MP said.
"The increase in the price of gas against the background of lower prices on the world market is an injustice to Ukrainian citizens. This problem should be solved, and there should be no speculations. Ukraine has large gas reserves, and, according to our calculations, Ukraine can fully meet its own needs for several years. This requires political will, an open market and transparent rules of the game," Taruta said.
The parties "Osnova" and "Batkivshchyna" united their efforts and teams in the parliamentary elections that will take place on July 21. Serhii Taruta is №2 in the electoral list of "Batkivshchyna".
