Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk said that the government would not fulfill the promise of President Volodymyr Zelensky to cancel utility bills for people over 70 years old. He told this during a briefing on November 27 to the journalist of Srtana.ua media outlet.
According to him, state policy is aimed at not-raising tariffs for all citizens of Ukraine, regardless of age.
“We have a government policy aimed at ensuring that tariffs do not increase. Now we see the opportunity to fix the price, which is now, and guarantee its non-restoration not only for the elderly but for all citizens of Ukraine. We proceed from the fact that this winter, absolutely any Ukrainian who needs this, regardless of age, should be protected,” said Honcharuk.
As we reported, the International Monetary Fund mission under the leadership of Ron van Rooden stayed in Ukraine on November 14-22. Its members noted the high progress in reforms achieved over the past few months.
