Zhirinovsky suggested adjusting gas prices in the Far Eastern Federal District
During a videoconference of State Duma deputies with Energy Minister Alexander Novak, LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposed adjusting gas prices in the Far East compared to other regions. The reason is that they are higher in the Far Eastern Federal District than in the rest of Russia.
As the TASS, Zhirinovsky said that this situation needs to be corrected and fuel prices in the Far East adjusted. He also proposed lowering taxes for oil companies in order to lower domestic gas prices.
In addition, Zhirinovsky proposed to slow down the pace of privatization of the energy sector in the country. He argued this proposal by the fact that rapid privatization had an extremely negative impact on aircraft manufacturing and shipbuilding. He proposed combining the entire oil industry into one state-owned company.
