The stable operation of the energy sector remains a priority task for the state. This was stressed by Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal during a Government session on April 29.
“Today we take a decision that gas prices for people remain unchanged. No increase. UAH 8 per 1 cubic meter of gas, as it was. The preferential price will also apply to enterprises that perform vital functions to ensure the state's defense capabilities”, Denys Shmyhal underlined.
By a separate decision, the Government recommends that local authorities and public utilities not raise utility tariffs during the martial law and state of emergency in Ukraine.
“Tariffs for people should not grow. But we also urge Ukrainians to continue to pay for utilities so that businesses have an opportunity to conduct repair activities and pay wages to their staff”, the Head of Government said.
