The National Commission sees no possibility of reducing gas prices for the population.

This was stated by the head of the regulator Dmytro Vovk before the meeting of the Cabinet on Wednesday, the "Interfax-Ukraine" reported.

"We at the National Commission do not see any sources to optimize the prices," - he said.

According to Vovk, "if you take the price of gas purchased in Europe, multiply it by the dollar exchange rate and add all the necessary taxes, the resulting price will be higher than the highest price of gas for the population."

Vovk pointed out several initiatives, that could lead to the optimization of heat tariffs for the population, while there are not such opportunities for gas.

At the customs post "Vylok" of the Transcarpathian customs office, customs officers seized an "AUDI A4" from a citizen of Hungary. The reason is submission to the the customs authority documents containing false information.

The citizen of Ukraine decided to undergo customs control in the "green corridor". As a basis for moving the vehicle across the customs border of Ukraine, the citizen filed a certificate of vehicle registration and a power of attorney for operation of the vehicle.

During the customs control, while checking documents filed by the foreigner, customs officers had doubts as to the authenticity of the power of attorney for operation of the "AUDI A4". Experts, who took part in the customs, determined that the power of attorney was forged.

The Transcarpathian customs office also sent a request to the head of the firm which, according to the submitted documents, had issued the power of attorney for operation of the car. From the received answer, it became clear that the company had not issued it.

The cost of the car is 27,130 Euro.


The actions of the citizen of Ukraine have signs of violation of customs regulations under Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine. Currently, the report of customs rules violation was drawn up, and the "AUDI A4" released in 2014 was confiscated.
