Ukrainian govt has no plans to raise electricity tariffs for population - PM

MOSCOW. Jan 30 (Interfax) - Ukraine will retain the preferential electricity tariff for the population, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal said.

"It was and remains 2 hryvnias 64 kopecks per kWh. In general, the government does not plan to change any tariffs for the population this winter," Ukrainian media quoted Shmygal as saying at a government meeting on Tuesday.

As of today, there are no restrictions and power outages in any Ukrainian region and there are no plans to do so, he said. "This year we are ending the second month of winter with a steady situation in the energy sector. Last year we lived amid constant restrictions and outages. Today there is nothing like that and there are no plans to do so," Shmygal said.
