KIEV, October 12 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s government plans to persuade the International Monetary Fund to take other measures to maintain cooperation without increasing gas and heating prices for the population, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov told a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

He noted that an increase in gas and heating prices remains one of the main obstacles for resuming cooperation and the Ukrainian government can propose other solution.

“The government has made its own calculations. Our position is that it is necessary to find other compensatory mechanisms and not to shift the burden of extremely high gas prices to people. I am confident that in this issue we will find the right decision,” he said.

Azarov said on October 25 the IMF delegation will visit Ukraine “to assess how the stand-by arrangements are being fulfilled.”

He added that Ukraine has “positive results and clear budget plans.”

In this respect the head of government underlined that he looks with optimism to prospects for resuming cooperation with the IMF.
