TSKHINVAL, January 14. /ITAR-TASS/. The reduction of taxes on energy, which is being supplied to South Ossetia by Russia, considerably assists to the republic, Prime Minister Rostik Khugayev told Itar-Tass.
The work to reduce energy taxes are being done with Russian colleagues at different levels. “The parties are discussing possibilities to reduce prices for energy supplies to the level, which exists in North Ossetia. The parties also discussed ways to speed up the ratification of an agreement on trade regime and the non-use of customs duties on fuel and lubricants,” Khugayev said.
“Measures are being discussed to reduce gas prices,” the South Ossetian premier said.
At present, the Russian Energy Ministry is working to change rules for supplies from North Ossetia. “The government is finalising a draft resolution on this effect,” he said.
“The change of supplies rules is a big step forward and big assistance from Russia. No privileges are being done for anyone. We’re very grateful for Russia,” Khugayev said.
“I can’t say exactly what the energy price will be. I hope that it will be easier for a final consumer to pay for power,” the premier said.
As of today not only Russia has supplied electricity to South Ossetia. According to Energoresurs-South Ossetia, the republic buys electricity at a price of 2.35 roubles Kw/h and sells to physical persons at a price of 2.64 roubles.
In 2012 tax performance reached 63.5 percent while in 2013 it increased up to 75.5 percent.
