In Ukraine tariffs for gas for consumers can will raise in three - five times in relation to today's «the lowest in Europe» to the prices.
I reported about it chapter «Naftogaz» Ukraine Andrey Kobolev, writes Gordonua.
According to Kobolev, today tariffs for gas in Ukraine «the lowest in Europe» that is a heavy burden for national economy.
- It is a heavy burden for economy. But it not that burden which should be born. For what to grant subsidies to those people who can pay usual market price? I think, we speak about increase in prices for gas many times... From three to five times, –Kobolev told.
At the same time, he emphasized that the final decision on tariffs isn't made yet.
- Now there is a discussion concerning what will be the fair price. And the fair price for the country which is the importer of some goods, and here isn't present a secret,–it is the average price of import. And it is much higher, than that price which pay now for gas,–I noted chapter «Naftogaz».
He noted that the new scheme on subsidies is now developed. Privileges for gas, Kobolev emphasized, have to be provided only to those who can't really pay on official tariffs.
Earlier the prime minister - the minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk I declared that t arifa on energy carriers will lift to market. He specified thus that a number of privileges for people, gas price for which will be entered «it will be very heavy».
