"Session of the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Council is scheduled for September 20. The day before yesterday we held the last conciliation board and came to the draft decision, which I think will be passed at the session of the regional council. At this meeting, we agreed on the issues raised by deputies of the regional council, which were taken into account and incorporated into the contract between the Chevron company and our country," Stavytsky said.

In addition, the minister noted that he expected the Lviv Regional Council to consider the issue at the next session.
