Vsevolod Kovalchuk, interim acting director of SE NPC Ukrenergo, announced that he resigned from Ukrenergo. He announced this on Facebook.
The Supervisory Board of Ukrenergo examined his appeal and decided to terminate the duties of the Chairman of the Board of the company last week.
Vsevolod Kovalchuk was appointed acting director of the State Enterprise NPC Ukrenergo on October 2, 2015.
“It was a difficult decision for me, to which I have been working up to this for several months. For more than four years I had the honor to lead the system operator of the Ukrainian power grid, transforming it from an ordinary, albeit specialized, Ukrainian state-owned enterprise into a modern company... ”, he wrote.
According to him, you always had to fight for reforms in the industry constantly:
“It was a work under extreme pressure, in the conditions of constant attempts to discredit, as everyone wants control over the system operator: every manufacturer, state or private. Importers, exporters, investors in new generating capacities, large industrial consumers, etc.”
He also noted that for a long time, the Ministry of Energy had been blocking the activities of Ukrenergo with actions or inaction.
“I have always been a supporter of liberal economic laws, a strong state and the rule of law. Blocking the activities of strategic enterprises, violating the letter and spirit of international obligations, inaction, populism and administrative pressure, I despise and find it unacceptable to work in such conditions”, summed up Mr. Kovalchuk.
To recap, the management of Ukrenergo was suspected of causing damage to the state by UAH 13 million.
