The government spent $ 3 billion from the IMF on the “Big Construction”, instead of purchasing natural gas and coal for the heating season.
This was stated by the ex- Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, reports “Censor.NET”.
“This is phenomenal, fundamental idiocy. Snow fell on your head – happiness – $ 3 billion from the IMF gift. Buy coal, gas, buy anything, to pass the peak. And they spent this money on “Great Budivnistvo” – a good thing, the guys are very important and necessary, contractors earn, interest goes – everything is beautiful. But at the same time we will freeze in winter, God forbid, “- said Avakov in on the air of the TV channel “Ukraine 24”.
He criticized the authorities for the failure preparation for the heating season, due to which the energy system of Ukraine became dependent on Russia and Belarus.
“There is no gas, no coal, we have a warm November outside – and we are already asking for emergency assistance from Russia and Belarus – give us electricity. And if Vladimir Vladimirovich says: “I will not give it,” but if “First, I will give it, and then I will turn it off.” Are we going to this? “- the former minister added.
Let us remind you that earlier the state-owned Ukrenergo recognized it impossible to balance the energy system of Ukraine without help from Belarus, after it requested emergency assistance on November 2. of the company “Centrenergo”. For the last 2 months, every second power unit of “Centrenergo” has not been operating due to the lack of coal.
