Ukrzaliznytsia wants to solve their financial problems by raising tariffs, particularly on freight. Such opinion on air of “112 Ukraine” stated the Minister of infrastructure Vladimir Omelian.
According to him, the Ministry does not support such methods entirely.
“In fact, this is only the first step. There is a desire of the Railways to solve their financial problems by raising rates. We believe that this is not the right approach. At the same time not to block this process, it was a meaningful discussion and not just a dialogue between the Ministry and “Ukrzaliznytsya”. We are now agreed on such a rise, with the understanding that it should pass all the formal procedures, to be submitted to the Cabinet, and it is as an organ of control “Ukrzaliznytsya” will make the final decision. My clear requirement for the head of “Ukrzaliznytsya” was such that any increase must be tied to a clear position, which was sent the money, where you have already sent the money by increasing 15% this year, what was purchased and how much was overcome corruption in UZ. While these answers are no, I hope that before the final decision Mr. Balczun prepared and will be able to articulate all the issues that have put the Ministry,” said Omeljan.
