On Friday, August 14, during a meeting of the State Commission on technogenic and environmental safety and emergencies, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk instructed relevant authorities to speed up a procedure of public procurement of fire fighting equipment and to ensure the transfer of fuel from the State Reserve Agency to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine.

The Head of Government stressed that there had been allotted UAH 200 million for the public procurement procedure, so he commissioned to figure out the situation with the purchase of firefighting equipment. "We had a meeting in this issue on June 15. I have such a perfect reference. Everything has been fulfilled, everything has been done. Hence, there shouldn’t be any fire in the country. Each administration has reported. Each Ministry has reported. However, in fact things are different", said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

The Prime Minister ordered to appeal to the Antimonopoly Committee and to expedite the process of considering the tender.

“Now we have a new leadership of the Antimonopoly Committee, as far as I know, they have now a much more transparent procedure. Please, address them, consider it publicly, as the time flies. It has been 2 months since then, and we still lack new equipment", stressed the Head of Government.

Apart from that, Arseniy Yatsenyuk appealed to the Ministry of Economy with a demand together with the State Reserve Agency to submit a draft directive of the Government on urgent delivery of aviation fuel to the State Emergency Service.
