Gas prices for industry and the public after the talks with the International monetary Fund are likely to be aligned.
About this in comments to journalists said the Minister of energy and coal industry Igor Nasalik, reports UKRINFORM.
“Extension (of the decision on imposing special duties — ed.) for 1.4 years was carried out by the Ministry. What will be the outcome of the negotiations? The Prime Minister has announced that we can’t have constructive conversations with the IMF. Will increase. How much and what I can’t say, because I am not a participant in the negotiations,” said Nasalik.
According to him, the increase was likely to align the price of gas for the population and the price of gas for industry.
