    According to Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, the country's energy sector and the Energy Ministry are in a a catastrophic situation.

    KIEV (Sputnik) – Ukraine is facing a crisis situation in its energy sphere and the country’s Energy Ministry and state-run companies are not ready to provide heat for the upcoming winter, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Friday.

    “There is a catastrophic situation in the energy sector. On Monday, I will hold an anti-crisis energy meeting. It has come to the fact that the state company Tsentrenergo hasn’t worked for a month and a half, and only two days ago they fired up the boilers once they found out that that the prime minister was coming in order to demonstrate that there will be electricity. There is a crisis situation in the energy sector and the [Energy] Ministry and the state companies aren’t ready to provide heat and electricity for Ukraine,” Yatsenyuk said during a meeting in Kharkhiv.
