The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine will appeal against Kyiv District Administrative Court decision to recognize the government’s decision on natural gas price as illegal.
This was announced by the press secretary of the head of the government, Vasiliy Ryabchuk, on Facebook.
“On the decision of the Kyiv District Administrative Court: this decision canceled decree that has become invalid. The Appealed Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated April 27, 2016 No. 315 became invalid according to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers dated October 19, 2018 No. 867 “On approval of the Regulation on imposing special duties on natural gas market entities to ensure public interests in the process of natural gas market functioning”. Even so, the Cabinet of Ministers will appeal this decision in the prescribed manner,” the speaker said.
Note that the day before, on March 4, the Kyiv’s District Administrative Court has declared unlawful and invalid resolution No. 315 of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated April 27, 2016, which, inter alia, determines the procedure for setting the price of natural gas for the needs of the population.
