"Currently, natural gas to Ukrainian households is sold for les than market rate", said, Andrey Kobolev, Head of Naftogaz Ukraine.

“Gas in Ukraine has always been sold for less than market rate. Even now its price is far lower than what it should be. If the gas price were to be made what it ought to be, it might be getting lower now. Presently, no trend like that is to be expected in Ukraine," Kobolev added.

As of April 1, 2015, Ukrainian households have been sold natural at UAH 7,188 per 1 cubic meter (VAT included).
