Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman described actions of some city mayors because of which citizens have problems with the supply of heating as irresponsible and unacceptable. He made this statement, while opening the Government session.
"The hostages of such actions are citizens. And I have to resolve this issue twenty-four hours a day, make arbitrary decision in order to unlock the supply of heating in Kryvyi Rih, Pavlograd, Kherson. How many times do I have to repeat why it is so difficult to prepare a district heating company starting from April? Resources were provided, 17 billion cubic meters of gas were pumped into the gas storage facilities, a law on debt restructuring was approved, the decision to start the heating season on October 5 was endorsed. But local authorities are dragging their feet. Why were they elected as mayors if they can not make elementary things?", the Prime Minister said.
Volodymyr Groysman claimed that he is ready to appeal to the Parliament to dismiss mayors, who did not ensure smooth start of the heating season, from work.
"I am tired of this irresponsibility that people have to feel every day," the Head of Government underscored.
