The Minister of infrastructure Vladimir Omelian insists on reconsideration of the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers about the development of PAK «Ukrzaliznytsya» from subordination of the Ministry and the transfer of control of the Ministry of economic development and trade, UNIAN reports.
The Minister said that the decision was taken at an emergency Cabinet meeting in violation of all the formal requirements of the rules of such meetings.
However, he noted that voted for this decision, subject to the corresponding document for preliminary approval of the Ministry of Infrastructure.
«I hope that the government will consider the matter further and take an informed decision. In fact, the ideologues of this transmission pursued a single goal – to hide from the public the answers to the questions about the real state of Affairs on the «Ukrzaliznytsya», — said the Omelyan, adding that the transfer of «BONDS» in the management of economic development «will only aggravate the crisis in the company and will not leave a chance for reform».
He noted that currently the decision to transfer the company in control of the Ministry of economic development is not yet signed by the Prime Minister, and in the case of signing of the Ministry of Infrastructure intends to defend its position on the illegality of the transfer of «Ukrzaliznytsia» in court.
«If this order is signed, it is a violation of the act, which provides for liability. In any case, we will publicly inform the public what is happening in the Railways, we will prepare for legal action and prove in court their innocence,» said Emelyan.
He stressed that the transfer of «Ukrzaliznytsi» in the management of the Ministry of economic development is appropriate only after the fulfillment of certain conditions, in particular the establishment of an independent Supervisory Board, the cleansing of corruption and the creation of new models of vertically-holding control.
«Actually, it could have been done in the last year, if one had the desire… And to reform and economic development. Here a question of political desire and will», — the Minister added.
We will remind, on 18 January, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted the decision on the withdrawal of «Ukrzaliznytsya» from subordination of the Ministry of infrastructure of Ukraine, by transferring responsibility directly to the government.
