Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman described actions of some city mayors who caused heating supply problems to citizens as irresponsible and unacceptable. He made this statement while opening the Government session.
“Citizens are the hostages of such actions. And I have to resolve this issue twenty-four hours a day, make arbitrary decision in order to unlock heating supply in Kryvyi Rih, Pavlohrad, Kherson. I have already mentioned it many times: is it so difficult to start preparing the heating supply system from April? Resources were provided, 17 billion cubic metres of gas were pumped into the gas storage facilities, the law on debt restructuring was approved, the decision to start the heating season on 5 October was endorsed. But local authorities are dragging their feet. Why were they elected as mayors if they cannot cope with 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.
"I am tired of this irresponsibility that people have to feel every day," the Head of Government underscored.
