The head of ARMA Olena Duma reported that on Tuesday, during a meeting with representatives of relevant ministries and state-owned companies, the Ministry of Energy supported ARMA's proposal to transfer the Glusco network to the management of Ukrnafta under a special procedure - in accordance with Article 21-1 of the Law on the ARMA.
She noted that, taking into account the negative experience of the previous manager, a number of essential conditions will be fixed in the future contract:
- the minimum amount of monthly revenues to the budget is UAH 5 million;
- approval by ARMA of changes in the management of companies whose corporate rights will be transferred to the management of the manager;
- submission by Ukrnafta of specified reporting information on all accounts, which was not performed by the previous manager.
In August, ARMA terminated the contracts with Naftogaz Oil Trading for the management of the assets of the Glusco gas station network.
At the same time, Naftogaz Oil Trading considers these actions of ARMA illegal and is preparing a corresponding appeal to the government.
In May 2022, the Cabinet of Ministers transferred 172 Glusco gas stations to the management of Naftogaz of Ukraine.
In December 2021, Greek businessman Dimitrios Anifantakis announced that he had acquired 100% of the shares of Glusco Energy S.A. (Switzerland), which owns more than 100 gas stations and four oil depots in Ukraine.
In June 2021, the court arrested the chain of gas stations, Glusco.
Earlier, the State Fiscal Service and the Security Service of Ukraine discovered a scheme for selling low-quality petroleum products in the network of gas stations.
The gas station chain's estimated amount of tax evasion was about UAH 240 million.
Glusco Energy bought a gas station in Ukraine from Rosneft (Russia).
