Ukraine's parliament voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to set up a commission to investigate the circumstances surrounding yesterday's raid of national energy company Naftogaz by masked Security Service officers.

A total of 391 lawmakers in the 450-seat Supreme Rada voted in favor.

As a reminder, SBU officials attacked and occupied the building of Naftogaz Ukraine company yesterday. They demanded original documents of agreements with Gazprom concerning transit and supplies of natural gas for 2009-2019.

On March 2 SBU instituted a criminal action against certain Naftogaz officials and accused them of stealing 6.3 billion cu m of gas, which cost more than 7.4 billion UAH. SBU also detained deputy head of the Energy regional custom Taras Shepitko.

On Thursday, the Security Service searched the main office of Ukrtransgaz, Naftogaz's affiliate that runs the country's pipelines, despite a court ruling that had barred any investigation.
