Ukraine PM hopes to pass 'realistic' budget by Dec 1

KIEV, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said on Wednesday he hoped parliament would pass the 2019 budget by Dec. 1, adding that the government did not plan to raise gas prices again during the heating season running to April.

Ukraine must pass a budget in line with the requirements of the International Monetary Fund in order to qualify for more IMF aid.

“I hope that ... and it is necessary that Ukraine has a balanced, absolutely realistic budget before December 1,” Groysman said during a televised cabinet meeting. (Reporting by Natalia Zinets; writing by Matthias Williams; Editing by Toby Chopra)
