"As far as Tsentrenergo is concerned, I say, stop this comfortable money making. The company must be privatized, and the new owner is to be a non-Ukrainian company. I personally held talks in France and America - they are interested, very much interested," he said at a meeting in the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry on Tuesday.
The prime minister said the statement of the ministry regarding its need to control Tsentrenergo to regulate the market was false.
"I am sure the delays in privatization are explained only by the struggle for cash flows," Yatseniuk resumed.
