KIEV, March 3. /TASS/. Ukraine’s National Commission for State Electricity Regulation raised the minimum household gas tariff 3.3 times to 3,600 hryvnias (per 1,000 cubic meters) for the population starting from April 1.
The natural gas tariffs for the country’s enterprises have been raised 2.2 times, according to Ukrainian News agency.
The commission has raised the price of gas purchased in Ukraine’s biggest gas producing company Ukrgazdobycha 4.6 times to 1,590 hryvnias per 1,000 cubic meters.
The raise of gas tariffs was a key condition set by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the provision of a loan to Ukraine.
