Ukraine to hike domestic gas prices by 50 percent to meet IMF demands

KIEV Wed Mar 26, 2014 11:03am EDT



(Reuters) - Ukraine is raising the price of gas for domestic consumers by more than 50 per cent from May 1 and will implement further rises under a fixed timetable until 2018, an official of state energy company Naftogaz said on Wednesday.

The step, which will be widely unpopular with ordinary Ukrainians who have grown used to subsidised gas prices from the Soviet era, were taken in response to demands by the International Monetary Fund.

The interim government of Arseny Yatseniuk is in the final stages of talks with the Fund to secure $15-20 billion in a new aid package.

If Ukraine wants to borrow money from the IMF then they will have to put their finances in order. Would you lend money to a man who insists on visiting the casino?

And for 25th May these clowns have scheduled presidential elections... it looks super. Now I'm quite sure Vovan pays them a bit.

They won't. They'll blame it all on Russia, as usual.

I agree with you entirely. But I have no idea how they will achieve that. Its more corrupt than Russia, a rapidly contracting economy, aging industry and infrastructure - not to mention the political and social instabilty.

There are no grounds for this blame you believe?:) Okiey, you didn't forget about our bet?:) Poroshenko will be the next president, it seems.

What for he sponsored maidowns if not for being elected? Almost "independent" candidate, has own competetive business, no visible connections to "bloody" Yanuk and radical nazis. Indeed, the most possible one.

I don't forget:-) Now that Yanukovich has been exiled, can I substitute him with Yarosh?

Only if we get another bet going for another 5K:) You can make an equalizer strike.:) You can make it 7K, this way you may win 2K if Yarosh comes to power.:) If you lose both, you will owe me 12K.:) Sounds fair?:)

He'll likely be the next president but he won't have the power to do anything without Rada's approval and Prime Minister blessing too. President will be technically ceremonial... nothing more as they reverted back to their former constitution. They learned a lesson from Yanukovich who wielded too much power, become excessively corrupted and bankrupted the country too.
