The EBRD has invited candidates in the Supervisory Board of Naftogaz

ЕБРР предложил кандидатов в набсовет Нафтогаза

The list was handed to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

The European Bank for reconstruction and development (EBRD) gave Ukraine a list of new independent candidates to the Supervisory Board of Naftogaz of Ukraine. The President of the Bank Suma Chakrabarti said in an interview with Voice of America.

“We have provided the government with a list of possible candidates. A person who, in our opinion, are interested and will be able to form a new Council as soon as possible. We are now waiting for the response of the government”, – said Chakrabarti.

The dismissal of independent members of the Supervisory Board of Naftogaz in September of this year has caused concern of the international experts and officials, he added.

The head of the EBRD noted the need to understand the reasons for the resignation of the independent members of the Board. According to Chakrabarti, this decision could be related to disappointment in the process of taking decisions, lack of transparency and commercial discipline that might create unequal conditions for the partners of Naftogaz.

An important factor could be the concern that the requirement to submit electronic declarations on a par with civil servants provides for criminal liability for any errors.

Earlier it was reported that the members of the Board of NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy received a reward of 50.8 million at the end of 2016.
