In Ukraine an inadequate price of energy relative to incomes: economist

В Украине неадекватная цена на энергоресурсы относительно доходов граждан - экономист

The government fills the state budget through excise tax on gasoline in euros rather than in local currency.

Such opinion during the press-conference in information Agency “ГолосUA” said the head of the Committee of economists of Ukraine Andriy Novak.

There is a need to revise the excise tax on gasoline in euros and in local currency, he said.

“While the policy of the Ukrainian authorities is not aimed at increasing incomes, but only on the content of the budget by increasing taxes and excises – will be inadequate the price of energy relative to incomes of citizens of Ukraine”, – said A. Novak.

The economist stressed that if we compare the income of our citizens with incomes of Europeans, the difference in incomes of Ukrainians and incomes in developed European countries is 10 times.

“Today there is such a global trend – people are moving to hybrid cars or electric cars,” – said A. Novak.

The expert suggested that we will gradually move away from classic cars, consuming energy, hybrids and electric. True, not all Ukrainians can’t afford it.

“Everything in this question depends on the economic situation in the inadequate ratio of incomes to prices for all goods and services in Ukraine”, – summed up Alexander Novak.
