The Party “Dignity and Truth Platform” (PPPDA) demands to urgently convene the Parliament’s commission on economy, budget and finance so as to question officials in charge of the National Agency for Energy Regulation and the Competition Council and stabilize the situation on the oil products market. The head of the parliamentary group of the PPPDA Alexandr Slusari said that the oil companies amid the governmental chaos cross any red line, IPN reports, quoting a press release of the PPPDA.
“Even if there is a report by the Competition Council pointing to multiple concerted actions of these companies, the oil companies resort again to cartel agreements, being sure that they will not be penalized this time too. The fuel prices have been raised the sixth time the past four months, again absolutely unjustifiably if we take into account the international crude oil quotations. This is a new blow given to the country’s economy, especially agriculture,” said Alexandr Slusari.
The MP noted the actions taken by the oil companies represent crass defiance of common sense as they aim to increase their revenues before the modification of the methodology for calculating the minimum price of oil products.
Alexandr Slusari also said that the citizens have the right to take to the streets in such cases and he called on them to do it. He asked for a meeting of the Parliament’s commission on economy, budget and finance to be convened immediately so as to question functionaries of the National Agency for Energy Regulation and the Competition Council and stabilize the situation on the oil products market.
