Киев и МВФ обсудят новую формулу цены на газ – СМИ

According to the new formula it will be possible to avoid the growth of gas prices by 15%.

Ukraine plans to offer to its main lender International monetary Fund a new formula of calculations of gas prices. About it reports Reuters, citing its sources.

According to the source Agency, if, during a meeting in Washington, Finance Minister of Ukraine Oleksandr danylyuk and the IMF do not agree, then Ukraine will have two options: the first is to fulfill the requirements of the Fund. The second option, as said the interlocutor of the Agency, is “to say that we can live without the IMF”, to make a political decision and not pay attention to the cooperation with the Fund.

It is noted that under the new formula, which the Ukrainian side is going to offer, it will be possible to avoid the growth of gas prices by 15%. According to the source, in accordance with the new supply, prices of gas will rise by 4.8% compared to 17.6% of the needs of the existing system.

As noted, Ukraine and the international monetary Fund will discuss the pricing of gas for households next week in Washington.
