Since the beginning of the year, 215 gas stations were checked in the Odesa region, 46 illegal gas stations were discontinued. This was announced by Deputy Head of Regional State Administration Vyacheslav Ovechkin at a working meeting with the participation of representatives of relevant departments, prosecutor's office, State Tax Service and SES in the Odesa region.

218.5 tons of fuel worth UAH 5.5 million and equipment worth UAH 5.2 million were seized.

“215 petrol stations have been checked by mobile groups since the beginning of the year. At present, the trend is positive - most illegal stations cease their activity independently. To improve statistics, it is necessary to create a clear list of problem gas stations in the region with a confirmed photo report. It is necessary to understand which gas stations are inspected and operate legally. And which of them are illegal or open criminal proceedings, ”Vyacheslav Ovechkin said.

At the moment, according to the results of inspections of the illegal activity of gas stations - in Ukraine for the month the price for fuel has decreased on the average by 2 UAH. Motorists' daily expenses decreased by UAH 16.5 million.

In addition to the quality of fuel and permits, fire safety, traffic management and the employment of workers are inspected. Inspectors report daily on the progress of inspections by the Odesa RSA.
