Increase of tariffs of “Ukrzaliznytsya” should occur only after changes in the quality of service – Omeljan

The initiative of PJSC “Ukrzaliznytsia” to increase tariffs from 2017 is under consideration in the Ministry of infrastructure of Ukraine. This was stated by Minister of infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian, the press service Mininfrastruktury.

“Now the offer of “Railways” is really the increase in tariffs, the financial project plan for 2017 submitted to the Ministry of infrastructure. The Ministry’s position is very simple – any increase in tariffs must be reasonable and be carried out only after the “Ukrzaliznytsia” will show the effectiveness of anti-corruption measures, the implementation of the reforms, explain the structure of the tariffs,” – said Omeljan.

Separately, he said the issue of tariffs for passenger transportation.

“In the context of passenger transportation is also a very sensitive issue. And there can be no direct answer, saying, we have such financial condition, and therefore we raise rates. I want the Ukrainian monopoly provided a quality product, and it has received more money, not just raise tariffs”, – said Omeljan.
