 Ukraine’s PM Hroisman says no new increase in gas price scheduled

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman says the next 35 percent increase in gas price for the population is out of the question.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, the head of the Ukrainian government said during the Freedom of Speech TV show aired by ICTV channel late on Monday.

"The issue of whether to hold another increase [in gas price] by 35 percent is not on the agenda and it will never be. This [increase in gas price] will never happen because it is unacceptable for the Ukrainian citizens. And I stand by the people in this regard," he said.

The Cabinet of Ministers approved the increase in the natural gas price for the population by 23.5 percent from Nov. 1.
