Security Service suspects the owners “Kyivenergo” and “Kyivvodocanal” in the large-scale frauds
The Cabinet instructed the Kyiv City State Administration (KCSA) to find out whether the state budget steal the company “Kyivenergo” and “Kyivvodocanal.” Utility monopolies suspected of building artificial debts for electricity and manipulation of “economically justified tariffs”. The information that the “case may be impure” Cabinet has received from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).
This KV learned from the letter head of the acting head of the SBU Vitaly Malikov to Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman, passed by the Cabinet in the KSCA to respond 26/12/2016 year.
“Security Service received information about the prerequisites for the introduction of individual leaders of enterprises in the sphere of housing and communal services (HCS) illegal schemes and mechanisms of artificial debt capacity for the consumed electric energy, which creates a threat to the economic security of the state and lead to a waste of state budget funds in a large scale”, – the letter said the head of the SBU.
According to him, the country’s critical situation with payments for electricity water utilities with a number of power generating companies, including in particular, there are PJSC “Kyivenergo” with “strange” debt of $ 225.7 million hryvnia.
“The reason may be an artificial falsification of the actual cost of settlement of the central water supply and drainage system by including excessive water loss, fictitious overstatement volume of electricity consumed, the manipulation of the concept of economically reasonable rate and so on. In the future, some representatives of financial and industrial groups that control the activity of enterprises in the sphere of housing and communal services, it is planned to use state budget funds, which are provided to local budgets in the form of subsidies to repay debt for the consumed electricity, which has arisen due to the mismatch of actual cost of production, transportation and supply of heat energy, district heating services, hot and cold water and drainage approved tariffs “, – wrote to Malik.
According to him, it creates the conditions “for the budget appropriation of money by breeding of such enterprises to accounts controlled entities (SPD) under the guise of the purchase of securities, the signing of contracts of insurance, consulting services, devised works and so on.”.
As has been repeatedly reported by the KV, PJSC “Kyivenergo” and PJSC “AK” Kyivvodocanal “permanently fix different amounts of mutual debts and debts of their customers, who in the opinion of management of these enterprises and a number of officials of the KSCA should be compensated at the expense of budget funds due to the” mythical difference “in tariffs, which are loss-making has always been in great doubt citizens.
It seems that this opinion is shared by the SBU, which, to avoid all of this offer:
– Check the accuracy of the grounds for the settlement of the difference in tariffs;
– To make calculations using the mechanism of repayment of debt on the difference in rates only after due diligence and confirm the legality of the formation of the debt structure.
Note Malikov sent this message Groisman more November 11, 2016.
Recall, October 27, 2016 city council at the urging of the team Vitali Klitschko took a very scandalous decision – made changes to the budget of Kyiv for 2016, in connection with which PJSC “Kyivenergo” and PJSC “AK” Kyivvodocanal “received” by the grateful people of Kiev “448, 3 million hryvnia in the form of compensation for unsubstantiated and unjustified debt by the difference in rates.
Then a number of council members questioned the mayor’s honesty and suspected Klitschko and his team of corruption.
“In Kyiv City Council has long sounded timid voice that around the” Kyivenergo “and” Kievvodoknala “dark affairs happening, giving to earn millions of individuals. So glad that Klitschko received a tip-off from the SBU, suddenly begins to fight the “municipal mafia” is probably not worth – summed up in the comment KV anonymous source in the KSCA
