    posted 22 August 2017 11:03

    At present in Ukraine there are no reasons to raise gas prices for the population and the Government consistently proves this position to the key partners, first of all the International Monetary Fund (IMF), announced Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during the inspection visit to the Center for administrative service provision in Kyiv.

    «There are no objective reasons for the gas price hikes. We can prove this formula. We are in constant cooperation with the IMF (on this issue) », the Head of Government stressed.

    Apart from that, he emphasized the RAB (Regulatory Asset Base) formula for electricity developed by the National Commission for State Regulation of Energy and Public Utilities is unsuitable. «We consider that this formula will lead to an increase in electricity bills for the population. We do not back this», the Prime Minister noted and added that the tariff calculation formula should be changed.
