The reasonable cost of travel on the Kyiv metro is more than 30 hryvnia, but until the end of the war the price of tickets will not be increased. The head of the Kyiv Metro, Viktor Braginsky, spoke about this in an interview with LB.ua.

The tariff was last raised in 2018. At that time, the metro's electricity costs amounted to 466 million hryvnia.

“In 2024, we must pay 1.6 billion. Therefore, the reasonable tariff today is more than 30 UAH. But as you have already heard, Vitaly Vladimirovich (Klitschko – Ed.) said that during the war no one will increase the tariff.
