The European Energy Community believes that the law on the electricity market of Ukraine, which was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on April 13, will bring Ukrainian legal framework into compliance with the requirements of the EU energy legislation (the Third Energy Package).
This was stated by Mr. Janez Kopač, Director of Energy Community Secretariat, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"The adoption of the Electricity Market Law should bring the legal framework into compliance with the Third Energy Package and provide the long-awaited starting point for the implementation of the reforms," the European Energy Community stresses.
As noted, the provisions of the new law will contribute to Ukraine's integration into the pan-European energy market, which is the main goal of the agreement on the European Energy Community.
The main objective of the law is to ensure reliable and safe electricity supply to consumers, taking into account the interests of consumers and minimizing costs for electricity supply services.
