This applies to such companies as “DTEK Donetskie Elektrosety”, “Zaporozhyeoblenergo”, “DTEK Vysokovoltnye Seti”, “Luhanskoe Energeticheskoe Obedinienie”, SE “Regionalnye Elektricheskie Seti”.
The issue of setting tariffs for companies included in the sub-sanctioned group VS Energy (“Zhytomyroblenergo”, PJSC “Kirovogradoblenergo”, PJSC “Rovnooblenergo”, JSC “Chernovtsyoblenergo” and JSC “Khersonoblenergo”) was considered separately.
