The requirements of the International Monetary Fund to raise gas prices for the population are unacceptable, the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych stresses.

"Increasing in gas price for the population is unacceptable to us. We have raised it as much as it corresponds to the living conditions of our people. We have a comparison with our neighbors, with other countries," he said in interview with Ukrainian TV channels, the President’s press service informs.

According to him, the negotiations with the IMF do not stop. Yanukovych expressed confidence that the parties will reach understanding. "Now there is an understanding on both sides that we need to replace those requirements with some other. And, perhaps, we will find mutual understanding," the President said.
