Network of Petrol Stations Avias
The largest gas station network in Ukraine.
Avias is the main brand in the gas station network of the Privat Group. According to the official information, the overall ‘partner network’ includes one and a half thousand gas stations.
Now, according to the U-Control analytical system, Avias LLC, the main company of the network, has recently suspended its activities. Its tax debt totals ₴276m.
At the same time, the total amount of the tax debt of all legal entities that operated the gas stations of all brands of the Privat Group and that are now liquidated exceeds one billion hryvnias.
According to the field publications, the gas station network is run by several dozen firms to avoid taxes and the AMCU accusations in its dominant status.
The AMCU’s investigation over anticompetitive activities held by a ‘private’ network was blocked with the decision of the District Administrative Court. NABU also initiated proceedings regarding the funds withdrawal from Ukrnafta PJSC through the gas station network.
