Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this during Government Question Hour held in the Ukrainian Parliament today in response to a question about the composition of new gas tariffs, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"The price is actually determined by the market," Groysman said.
At the same time, according to the Head of Government, domestic gas production has been "virtually destroyed" in Ukraine.
"To say a few words about Ukrainian gas production. I visited the Shebelynka gas field recently and saw the state of domestic natural gas extraction. So, I want to inform you that the domestic gas production industry in Ukraine has actually been destroyed for decades, and this has been done absolutely deliberately," the Prime Minister said.
