"The IMF demands that Kyiv recalculate the budget for 2012 based on a realistic projection of GDP growth of 4%, which would require cutting back its revenues or expenditures by 3 billion UAH (USD 1 - UAH 7.98). In addition, it is proposed to levy a tax of 19% on the middle class," the publication says.
As Kommersant learned from a source familiar with the negotiations, during the visit of its mission to Kyiv from October 25 to November 3, the IMF also insisted on one-stage increase in gas tariffs for households by 30% and for heating companies by 60%. "The International Monetary Fund would agree to a gradual increase in the tariffs. But the Cabinet of Ministers relies on a successful outcome of the gas talks with Russia, so at this point a correction of the rates is undesirable," he said.
