 Subject: State monopoly on Ukrainian electricity exports
 Answer in writing 

DTEK is the first major private power company in Ukraine and it has recently alleged discrimination in favour of the state-owned company Ukrinterenergo on the Ukrainian electricity market.

The Ukrainian authorities have allegedly deprived DTEK of access to the export markets due to the Government's failure to implement auctioning of electricity exports. The new energy law, adopted by the Ukrainian Parliament on 19 March 2009, was intended to liberalise Ukrainian electricity markets and terminate the government monopoly on electricity exports. However, the deadlines established under the legislation have been significantly breached by the government, and the auction procedure adopted by the government contains several provisions allegedly in conflict with the law. The government failed also to implement auctioning by the deadline foreseen.

In consequence, private companies have been left without access to the EU export markets for electricity and furthermore the EU has been deprived of an available source of potentially cheaper electricity supply.

How does the Commission plan to respond to this situation?

Will the Commission take this and related matters into consideration in the ongoing negotiations on the EU‑Ukraine Association Agreement and in particular on the negotiations on the establishment of a deep and comprehensive free trade area (DCFTA)?
