 The Cabinet is Ready to Raise Gas Tariffs for Population, Minister

The Government of Ukraine is ready to raise gas prices for some consumers.

In the commentary to The Wall Street Journal in Brussels, Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara made it clear that this can remove one of the main obstacles to a deal with the IMF for a new loan.

Kozhara also noted that Ukraine will not pay a fine of $ 7 billion that the Russian energy giant Gazprom filed against Naftogaz for underconsumption of gas last year.

The foreign minister also warned Russia that if it will leave the gas prices for Ukraine, it may lose a key export market.
