Groisman is initiated negotiations with the IMF about the gas prices

The Prime Minister will commit to begin discussions with the Fund to find a way not to raise the price of gas.

Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman will instruct Naftogaz jointly with the Ministry of Finance to hold consultations with the International monetary Fund on the development of mechanisms which will prevent further increase in gas prices. He stated this on Friday, March 15, during the hour of questions to the government in the Verkhovna Rada.

“Today I will instruct Naftogaz of Ukraine together with the Ministry of Finance to start a working discussion with the IMF in order to resolve this issue and prevent any increase (prices) of gas, based on the proposal of Naftogaz, he said.

Groisman said that aware of the information of the Naftogaz that the import price of natural gas was lower than that on which the company sells the blue fuel in the country, according to the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers. “Yesterday, Naftogaz stated that buying cheaper to import, I strongly support,” he said.

In turn, Naftogaz say that you can’t reduce the price of gas without removing the Cabinet restriction on the price for household consumers.

“We will not be able to do it, because according to the decree of Cabinet of Ministers No. 867 price and terms of sale of gas for households are set by the government. So we went to Cabinet with a proposal to amend the regulation of this issue,” – said the representative of the press service of the company to Ukrainian news.

The company also noted that the abolition of restrictions on the price of gas will allow domestic consumers to choose their own gas supplier.

As you know, according to the requirements of the IMF, Ukraine needs to increase gas price by 40% during the year. On the eve of Naftogaz said that the market price of gas from April will be lower than the installed Cabinet. In this regard, COBOL offers to cancel the regulation of prices for gas. Groisman spoke out strongly against the initiative, but welcomed the Ukrainians selling gas at prices below the established maximum.
