Vucic linked Russian gas prices to wage increases in Serbia

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic believes that the country can count on a greater increase in wages and pensions if it manages to agree on low prices for gas from Russia. According to him, now Serbia has the lowest gas prices and they are lower “only in Moldova and Ukraine”.

“Now we are faced with the question of whether we will have time to quickly update the first unit (power plant networks .— “B”) TENT and reach an agreement with Putin, then we could go to a greater increase in salaries and pensions, but the goal is not to increase prices for gas and electricity, ”said Mr Vucic to the B92 TV channel.

According to the Serbian President, the gas price will be made up of the oil formula and the exchange value. He expects a long and cold winter.

Mr Vucic said earlier in October that Russia had offered gas for $ 790 per 1,000 cubic meters. m from the beginning of 2022. Now the price is $ 270. The Serbian President offered to buy gas for $ 510, although the country “cannot pay” for it at this cost either.

About negotiations on the price – in the material of “Kommersant” “Russia joins the non-aligned.”
