The Ukrainian authorities do not exclude growth of prices for gas for the population to 70%
The price of gas for Ukrainian citizens can grow more than doubled, said the Chairman of the Ukrainian National Commission of regulation of energy and utilities Dmitry Vovk. According to him, due to the revision of the tariff the price of gas will increase by 65-70%, the TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
As said Mr. wolf, “if the question of tariff revision would be solved at once, when it was initiated by the international monetary Fund (IMF)”, prices would rise by no more than 15%.
The increase of internal gas prices is one of the main demands in the negotiations between the IMF and Kiev. Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groisman promised that in the current heating season gas prices will not rise. However, he noted that the government has a formula according to which for half a year gas prices for the population will grow by 16%.
