The President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko forecasts that Russian gas price for Ukraine will be increased in future, he told today.

Yushchenko noted that three years ago gas price for Ukraine was approximately USD 62.At the same time the gas price set for communal sphere comprised approximately USD 35. That time in Russia this price made approximately USD 40 and “it was one of the reasons of polemics between Vladimir Putin and me in the context why the country, importing gas, has lower social price than the country, extracting it.”

Yushchenko said that he would not comment on nuances but noted that later on the price changed by USD 95 “and the power that made it was blamed severely. Now it comprises USD 135, and it is considered as a win. But it is not over yet. The price will be increased of course,” he said.

Speaking about housing communal tariffs, Yushchenko noted the necessity to reform the housing communal sphere. He is convinced that it should not be monopoly in this sphere as it will never allow to optimize price.
