Naftogaz has already approved an annual “Fixed” tariff for household consumers, freezing the cost of 1 cubic meter of “blue fuel” at 7.96 hryvnia for another 12 months, but the supplier company does not stop warning about the imminent revision of resource prices.

About the fact that the national gas supply company admits the possibility of an increase in the cost of the energy resource, since “market relations” require liberalization, including at the request of the IMF, writes NBN “, referring to the words of the head of the board of Naftogaz, Alexei Chernyshev, voiced on the Forbes Ukraine YouTube channel.

According to the head of Naftogaz, adjusting the tariffs for natural gas and other similar resources upward will significantly improve the investment attractiveness of the energy sector of Ukraine.

At the same time, we are not talking about the next 12  months, since raising gas tariffs in this difficult period is relatively improbable, but in the long term, “gradual liberalization”, excluding the so-called “shock therapy” for the population, subject to some stabilization of the situation on the domestic market of Ukraine quite possible.

Chernyshev emphasized:

I appreciate how unlikely liberalization of prices on the energy market this year… Legal restrictions apply. There is a war going on.

Earlier, we wrote about the fact that the Rada reported what tariffs for electricity will be introduced by the government from 1 June.
