22 October 20182209

The price of gas for households will not be increased until the end of the heating season, Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said.

"I want to say that neither this year nor during the current heating season the price of gas will be increased. End of story!" he said at a government meeting on Wednesday.

Groysman also said that the subsidy program "will provide an opportunity to protect all who will require protection."

"And the most important thing is that those who have low incomes today are already receiving subsidies, and no increases will touch you," he said.

As reported, on October 19, the government decided to raise gas prices for households in Ukraine by 23.5% from November 1, 2018.
