RUSSKY ISLAND, Primorsky territory, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Thursday ordered governor of Russia’s Far Eastern Primorsky territory Sergei Darkin to see to it that heating tariffs for population be stabilized and even brought down within the next two years.
According to the prime minister, the commissioning of the Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok gas pipeline will make it possible to do that.
“Within the next two years, it is necessary to stabilize the tariffs, and to bring them down,” he told the governor.
Domestic gas prices are much lower than those for exported gas, Putin noted. Thus, in his words, the national gas utility Gazprom exports gas at a price of about 400 U.S. dollars per a thousand cubic meters, while the gas price on the domestic market is 140 U.S. dollars.
“It must be reflected in the tariffs for the population,” Putin stressed.
