Problems of "Zaporozhyeoblenergo": the second protest
In November this year, the situation with the timely payment of wages at enterprises has significantly worsened. In Zaporizhzhia and the region, the total amount of debt is UAH 65.6 million. Zaporizhiaoblenergo alone accounts for half of the total debt - about UAH 31 million. Although the ZODA press service noted that as of November 1, no debts were paid to the communal enterprises of Zaporizhzhia.
Today, about 200 employees of Zaporizhiaoblenergo again went to the protest action under the walls of the Zaporozhye Regional State Administration. People only need one thing to pay off their wage debt, which now stands at UAH 60 million. People were holding banners and posters and chanting, "Salary!"
Zaporizhzhiaoblenergo also has a tax debt of almost UAH 71 million, debt to suppliers of goods and services - 70 million, as well as a complete lack of funds for the work needed to secure energy supply in the region.
The authorities promised to bring to the next session the issue of allocation of funds from the budget of the region for repayment of debts of utility companies to "Zaporozhyeoblenergo". However, this will only be done if the National Commission guarantees that the allocated funds will remain in the company's accounts.
The team of Zaporizhiaoblenergo intends to participate in protests on Friday until all the debts are repaid.
