AN OPEN LETTER OF UWEA AND UARE TO STATE AUTHORITIES

On June 5, 2020, two Renewable industry associations - the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association and the Ukrainian Association of Renewable Energy - addressed an open letter to the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov and the Chairman of the Committee on Rules of Procedure, Parliamentary Ethics and Administration of Verkhovna Rada's Work Serhiy Kalchenko to give due consideration to the photographs and video of the foul language correspondence on renewable sector of Ukraine between the Chairman of the Committee on Energy, Housing and Utilities Services Andriy Gerus and Andriy Zhupanyn, MP from the party Servant of People, which were published by the media.

The published chat of the Members of the Ukrainian Parliament vividly demonstrates the existence of conflict of interest in the electricity sector, an absence of professional understanding of the national renewable generation importance for the country’s energy independence, a total lack of tolerance and respect to the RES investors and Mr. Gerus’ personal animosity towards them.

The industry associations called on high-ranking officials to give a due assessment of Andriy Gerus’ obscene expressions about “green” energy sector of Ukraine and to take the necessary measures to recall these Members of the Parliament from the Committee on Energy, Housing and Utilities Services.
