The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has no plans to increase gas prices for consumers and statements which were made by some politicians on this issue appeared to be misleading. This was announced by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman on answering journalists' questions in Ternopil region.
In particular, commenting on the alleged Government plans to raise gas prices from October 1 to 8500 hryvnias , Volodymyr Groysman stressed: "I heard information that the Cabinet of Ministers intends to allow gas price hikes to UAH 8.5. thousand. I want to highlight that this is not corresponding to current realities. It's an absolute a false statement".
