City authorities do not have bank accounts, so the executive office could not have blocked them
Today, on July 26, the head of the State executive service of Transcarpathian region Natalia Panova gathered journalists to comment on yesterday's statement by the Mayor of Uzhgorod, in which he said that the executive office has blocked the bank accounts of the City Council because of what "the companies are deprived of payments, payments to the Pension Fund have been stopped, taxes payments and all service’s actions destabilize the livelihood of the city".
As stated by Natalia Panova, such statements by Victor Pogorelov are emotional and do not correspond to reality. "Uzhgorod city council and its subdivisions are debtors in a number of judicial decisions", - she said.
Natalia Panova explained that the executive service couldn’t have blocked the City Council’s accounts, because (and this has been confirmed by the Treasury) Uzhgorod City Council does not have bank accounts. Executive Service seized the property of the debtor (425 626.16 hryvnya), but at the request of BTI it turned out that the City Council officially registered only one piece of property – the administrative building on the Postal Square.
"The Mayor’s statement is an attempt to manipulate public opinion", - said the Head of the State executive service of Transcarpathian region. - It seems that authorities always cover their inability to manage by the statements that somebody prevents them from working".
