Ukraine aims to privatize 13 Ukrainian governmental port operators (stevedores) in 2015 – SE “USPA” explanation

Lately, a number of publications began to appear in mass-media, where authors run about the privatization of PORTS. We find it necessary to comment on and to clarify this situation.


First of all, according to the article 1 of the Law “On Ukrainian sea ports”, sea port – is a geographical meaning, but not a legislative one, as it was before the reform in maritime sphere. That is why, PORT can not be privatized as a matter of principle.


Secondly, in 2013 together with the Law coming into force “On Ukrainian sea ports”, all the strategic belonging of the governmental property of sea ports (berths, hydraulic structures, channels, water areas, infrastructure facilities of general usage, nets and etc) was given to the State Enterprise “Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority” and its branches in sea ports.


All that belonging of the governmental property, which is not regarded to be a strategic one (mechanic means, warehouses, equipment, port fleet) remained Governmental enterprises “Commercial sea ports”, which didn’t change its name and respectively derived in its abbreviation the word “port”, thus not being such. Thus, these companies perform exclusively economic functions, perform cargo handling and in fact their activities do not differ from other port operators of private form of property, which now handle 2 times more cargoes, that governmental stevedoring companies.


Thus, the strategic belongings of sea ports, assigned to the State Enterprise “Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority”, remain fully in governmental property and is not subject to privatization.


Only the assets of 13 Ukrainian governmental port operators are subject to the privatization, on condition of exclusion from the Verkhovanaya Rada from the Law of Ukraine “On description of right of state ownership items, which are not subject to privatization”


“This step was dictated by the market”, underlined SE “USPA” Acting Deputy Chairman on investments Viacheslav Voronoj. Thus, in 2014 the cargo handling of governmental port operators decreased by 3 %, and of private ones increased by 8%. This tendency has been tracked for many years. If now this step is not to be performed, we will face the situation, when all the cargoes will move to private companies and thousands of people working at state enterprises will lose their work. Besides, depreciation of key assets of governmental port operators is more than 80%. The legislation, allowing the investors to perform its effective modernization in Ukraine, doesn’t exist. That is why, there should be no question whether to allow privatization or not. The question should be – how to do it. The main aim of the state should now be the provision of the maximum transparent and effective privatization.
