President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said this in an interview with TV presenter Natalya Moseychuk that some strategic energy facilities should return under state control.
When asked whether he currently feels the influence of oligarchs and whether the state intends to claim back some privatised facilities, the president replied: "Where it is legally possible, yes. Where it is not possible, it is a matter of time."
In particular, he noted that this concerns energy facilities.
Zelenskyy stressed that "there are enterprises where we cannot enter and guarantee their safety".
"Some energy facilities must return under state control to avoid certain risks... This is not a revolution. This is an absolute requirement of wartime. I am not even talking about what we can do by law," the president said.
In the first half of the year, the State Property Fund sold 210 properties and raised over UAH 1.8 billion for the state budget.
Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal instructed the Ministry of Economy and the SPF to create a unified database of state-owned enterprises and discussed their privatisation with representatives of the agencies.
The state currently manages more than 3,000 facilities, of which 109 are designated as strategic and will not be subject to privatisation. More than 600 enterprises in the energy, transport and defence sectors will remain in state ownership until the end of the year.
