KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's president-elect Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Wednesday called on the government and state energy company Naftogaz to hold talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on lowering household gas prices from May 1.

The IMF, which is helping Ukraine with a multi-billion dollar loan program, has said it wants to see gas prices rise to their market level.

Zelenskiy said in a statement on Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) he wanted a planned gas price rise cancelled and for prices to be lowered instead.
