The Ukrainian authorities have been conducting a dialogue with Russia on the increase in prices for the production and delivery of electricity in the Crimea by 10-15%, said the Minister of energy and coal industry of Ukraine Volodymyr Demchyshyn.
"That's a possibility. Talked about 10-15%. There are certain consensus, but until then, until an agreement is signed, "quoted Demchishin RIA" Novosti ". According to his statement, At this point of time, the value is 2, 99 rubles per kW/h. Plans to increase prices Demchyshyn explained by the need to offset the costs of Ukraine on the production, transportation and supply of electric energy." Currently Ukraine is the only supplier of electricity in the Crimea. When electric power is purchased from entering the Peninsula, Russia. Remember, in January, the head of Ministry of Ukraine said that the country supplies electricity to the Crimea with a significant margin. We emphasize that in January, the state Council of Crimea adopted an opinion on the nationalization of the monopoly on the energy supply market Krymenergo, which is a subsidiary of DTEK and owned by Ukrainian oligarch Renat Akhmetov.
