Ukraine will inflate gas prices for the population


The Ukrainian government has agreed previously with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) about increase in prices for gas in the country for the sake of the next credit tranche. As TASS reports, the head of the Naftogaz of Ukraine company Andrey Kobolev at a forum of the European business association has reported about it. According to him, will reach a preliminary compromise, rates of price increase are now discussed. Earlier it was reported that since October of this year tariffs for gas for the population can be raised for 23,5 percent. Thus, the cost of one thousand cubic meters of gas can reach 8,5 thousand hryvnias (more than 300 dollars). In exchange Ukraine can count on the next tranche of the IMF of 1-1,9 billion dollars. The mission of the IMF has arrived in Kiev with negotiations on crediting continuation on September 6 and plans to stay there till September 19. According to the memorandum of cooperation signed in 2015 within four years of the IMF has to allocate to Ukraine 17,5 billion dollars. Four tranches are already transferred to total amount of 8,7 billion dollars. Ukraine expects to receive the next tranche this fall. But for this purpose it is necessary to fulfill a number of requirements of the IMF among which one of the main — advance in price of gas for the population. By different estimates, growth can be from 30 to 60 percent, in connection with price increase in the international markets. The cabinet of Ukraine had to raise gas price for the population even in the spring of this year, but hasn't made it. The government of the country considered such sharp price increase unjustified. Earlier officials of Ukraine said that increase in consumer prices of gas can turn back a default. There will be a need of payment of additional subsidies, and there was already now a deficiency of financing of a number of social programs.
