Statement by Wexler Group companies regarding the initiative of PJSC “Ukrtatnafta” to monopolize Ukrainian fuel market

We have carefully examined all promulgated arguments, which PJSC “Ukrtatnafta” presented in its appeal to the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, along with the requirement to initiate a special investigation concerning the import of petroleum products to Ukraine. Unfortunately, in our opinion, the only goal pursued by authors of this idea is the enrichment of “Ukrzaliznnytsia” by destroying the competition on the Ukrainian market of petroleum products together with its further monopolization. PJSC “Ukrtatnafta” has all the possibilities for modernization, development, and expansion of its market share, but for some reasons, it does not do this. We do not understand why “Ukrtatnafta” is trying to increase its profits not by modernizing the company and enlarging its production, but only by monopolizing the market and increasing the price. We state that the initiative of PJSC “Ukrtatnafta” has no realistic connection to the issue of protection of national producers’ interest and has a negative impact on interests of both the State and a national consumer, who will be forced to pay for everything on his own account. After the time when we started to work, the wholesale prices for diesel fuel immediately decreased by almost $40 per tonne. At the moment, the initiative of PJSC “Ukrtatnafta” will lead only to the opposite effect, so every Ukrainian will be forced to pay much more for the products of processing the same petroleum.
