Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman praised the decision to abolish recurring fee for gas distribution.
Ukraine undertakes by the end of September 2017 to ensure the split of a single tariff for gas in two - the cost of gas as commodity and the cost of gas transportation and distribution (a recurring fee) - by amending cabinet resolution No. 758.
The decision of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (NEURC) to impose a recurring fee for gas delivery infrastructure exploitation is ill-considered.
The National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (NEURC) intends to suspend the imposition of a recurring fee for gas infrastructure exploitation at the meeting scheduled for April 10.
Gas rates for the population will probably increase by 53 percent after April 1. Upon the increase, central heating rates for the population might rise by 80 percent on average.
