Mayor from the party “Batkivshchyna” is not reduced, but only increased tariffs. This was during a meeting of the conciliatory Council of Parliament said the head of the BPP Arthur Gerasimov, the press service of the party.
According to Gerasimov, the issue of increasing gas prices are widely used by those populist politicians who created this problem.
“I stress again that despite the war and the annexation of the Crimea, under the current economic conditions, external borrowing would not be needed if not for the debt hole created during the Tymoshenko and Yanukovych, which together gave us a legacy of debt in the amount of 70 billion US dollars! Today, when these same people tell us that, after returning to power, will be able to reduce the prices for gas almost twice and three times is a cynical lie! Promised everything and always, reduced prices no one ever will. And the facts clearly show that in 2017-2018, mayors from “Batkivshchyna” were reduced, but only increased tariffs. Stebnyk, Lviv, Cherkasy, Lutsk, Sumy… the List goes on, since today’s populists no prescription lower prices for gas, no understanding of how these prices to keep from further growth!”, – said Arthur Gerasimov.
He also stressed that the presidential political force fully supported the position Poroshenko to extend a program of subsidies and enhance protection of the vulnerable from tariff increases.
