On May 12, 2016, former president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko bragged about increasing the utility tariffs by 100% before U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. The increase was higher than the IMF asked, as Strana reported.

“Within the last three weeks, we demonstrate real great progress in the sphere of reforms. We voted in the parliament for 100% tariffs despite the fact that the IMF expected only 75%,” the president said.
