PM Hroisman says Ukrainians to see no further increase in gas price at least until heating season end

The price of gas for Ukrainian consumers will definitely not be increased in 2018 and even in the current heating season.

As reported by a correspondent for Censor.NET, this was stated by Ukraine’s Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman when reporting on the government activities over the past 9 months.

He believes the government’s most significant achievements are the country’s energy independence and nationwide energy efficiency measures. According to him, Ukraine is fully prepared for the heating season: "Sufficient gas stockpiles in the storage facilities mean that there is no threat to the heating season."

Hroisman also said the Energy Efficiency Fund was to start operating in 2019. As for a possible spike in the gas price, the prime minister said: "The gas price will be increased neither this year, nor this heating season."

According to him, the new system of grants-in-aid will definitely support everyone in need.

As reported, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the increase in the natural gas price for the population by 23.5 percent from Nov. 1, 2018.
