The heating season will be held at the appropriate level, the country is fully ready for winter. This statement was issued by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during A Question Time for the Government at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
"We have become used to working in harsh conditions. Our preparedness is out of question for winter period. Ukraine is ready, we have accumulated sufficient reserves of energy resources", noted the Prime Minister.
He placed a particular emphasis on the work of the Regulator (the National Commission for State Regulation of Energy and Public Utilities Sector) which is currently problematic due to the lack of a quorum in its work and the ineffectiveness of procedures. Thus, the Head of Government is ready to appeal to the President of Ukraine as well as to the Parliament with a request of assistance in resolving the situation. "I think we will find the necessary solutions," he claimed.
