Тарифи на газ для населення, як і раніше, не відображають реальної картини на газовому ринку

This is stated in the report of the State fiscal service of Ukraine.

It is specified that the gas which is supplied to reverse through EU countries, Ukraine fell compared to the previous reporting period on 3%.

“The state fiscal service of Ukraine have calculated the average cost of imported natural gas, formed in the process of its customs clearance during import into the territory of Ukraine in the period from 1 to 31 December 2018, which is 9062,3 UAH, or 329,04 dollars for 1 thousand cubic meters”, – stated in the DFS.
