The Government of Ukraine draws up a formula for gas price within the country, which would take into account the current economic situation and a profound social aspect, stressed Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman on air of one of the TV channels.
"The gas price remained unchanged during this heating season. I kept my promise, and for future periods, we have to find a formula that will prevent the growth of prices within the country. I emphasize the importance of the social aspect that can affect the quality of life of citizens, the Head of Government underlined. A fair formula in the country and social protection of people".
Increase of own gas production aimed to eliminate the need to import fuels and to set the price within the country without being tied to import parities was outlined as a top priority for the Government. 2020 was defined as a benchmark, when the volume of imports should be reduced to minimum, while the volume of own production is sufficient to meet the needs of Ukrainian consumers.
