The minister said the decision to cut off power supply is not a political but en economic decision.
"All the enterprises that were registered in the uncontrolled territory of Luhansk region and were Ukrainian have been completely nationalized. There was no payment to the energy market over the last two months. Therefore the cutoff is not the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers," he said.
