Den ukrainska regeringen skjuter sig själv i foten genom att sabba den inhemska energimarknaden. Frivärlds senior fellow Anders Åslund skriver för Atlantic Council om president Zelenskyjs hantering av utländska investerare vad gäller gasmarknaden.
After having created a mess in the electricity market, President Zelenskyy’s Servant of the People party now appears intent on doing the same with the gas market. Faction leader David Arakhamia has proposed a law to “temporarily” prohibit private companies from selling gas at commercial market prices.
In effect, this would mean the restoration of disastrous post-Soviet policies of subsidization that reforms finally brought to an end in 2015-16.
