Ukrzaliznytsia has decided on the supply of diesel fuel for the next period. An agreement has already been reached with suppliers to restore its supply. This was announced by the acting. Ivan Yurik, Chairman of the Board of JSC "Ukrzaliznytsia".
“Now Ukrzaliznytsia and fuel suppliers are coordinating plans for its shipment. Therefore, the issue of diesel fuel has been resolved for the near future, ”said the head of Ukrzaliznytsia.
Ukrzaliznytsia is working to ensure the stable operation of railway transport and is taking measures to ensure the uninterrupted provision of the required volume of fuel for the long term, the press service of the company commented.
Recall that on April 19, Ukrzaliznytsia announced that due to the refusal of suppliers to ship fuel under the concluded contracts, the company has a supply of diesel fuel for only four days.
In February, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine decided to impose sanctions on 19 legal entities and eight individuals, including MP Viktor Medvedchuk and his wife Oksana Marchenko.
The subsequent arrest of Medvedchuk's property and, in particular, the oil product pipeline had an indirect impact on the situation with the supply of diesel fuel for Ukrzaliznytsia. According to the Minister of Infrastructure Vladislav Krikliy, suppliers are ready to participate in new tenders and conclude new agreements, but under new conditions.
According to experts, in May Ukraine may face a shortage of diesel fuel due to the planned maintenance of the Belarusian Mozyr oil refinery, which coincides with the stoppage of supplies from the plants of the Russian "Rossneft".
