Head of the Kharkiv Regional Council Sergii Chernov, talking to media representatives after the plenary meeting of the extraordinary session of the Council, commented on statements about possible deterioration of drinking water provision for communities located near Yuzivska field.

"Kharkiv Region is really the region with limited amount of drinking water. There are some areas in which we implement the “Drinking water” State Program. Funds from the local budget are allocated for the improvement of water supply in some steppe areas and small communities”, - said Sergii Chernov. “There is no threat at all posed by hydraulic fracturing technology for the quality and quantity of drinking water. Experts said so today, including Director of the Research Institute of Ecological Problems, which thoroughly examined the international experience of non-traditional methods of extraction of hydrocarbons."

Also Head of the Regional Council said that the heads of the Ministry of Ecology and of the Region have agreed on mandatory inclusion of representatives of Kharkiv Region to all supervisory and public to be created during the project to ensure transparency. "People need to know stages of the project’s realization," - said Sergii Chernov.
