The Prime Minister believes that billionaires Rinat Akhmetov and Ihor Kolomoisky will readily pay more taxes for gas and oil production in compliance with amendments to the Tax Code, approved by the Verkhovna Rada today.
He told reporters in Kyiv about this, a Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“We managed to raise taxes for most profitable businesses, which are in the hands of the oligarchs. I am convinced that Rinat Akhmetov’s companies with readily pay the increased tax… I am also convinced that Ihor Kolomoisky will pay with pleasure the oil rent increased from 39 to 45 percent,” he said.
At the same time, the Premier noted that elements for stimulation of this business were introduced. In particular, on each well, which started production of oil or gas, the government grants a benefit of 50% of standard rent for two years. “By this, we stimulate gas and oil production, stimulate energy independence of the country and the increase of domestic energy production,” he added.
