President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy commends the government's adoption of a resolution to reduce gas tariffs for the population. The Head of State is convinced that utility tariffs should be socially fair, and the gas market should operate according to the standards of transparent trade and fair competition.

"According to the decision, gas prices for the population will fall by more than 30%. We worked together to find mechanisms for this. This decision will also encourage market players to work honestly and transparently and, above all, to take care of their client, i.e. an ordinary Ukrainian,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The decision was made due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economic situation. It is temporary and plays an important role in establishing a fair gas market in Ukraine.
