“We should not allow any politicians, promising that gas, but before that it was gasoline, sugar, and even before that the bread … will be free, we will distribute. We already ate it. Free cheese – only in a mousetrap. Or in the imperial capital, in Moscow, where it was necessary to go in order to receive gas and hand over sovereignty. We will not allow a return to these times, ”he said.
On October 19, Prime Minister Vladimir Groysman announced that Ukrainians would increase gas prices by a quarter from November 1. According to the head of government, the need to raise gas prices arose because of Ukraine’s debts to international partners. Otherwise, Ukraine will be defaulted.
