Ukraine Inflation Rises

KIEV -- Ukraine's month-on-month inflation rate more than doubled in April to reach 2.3 percent, the highest monthly rate recorded so far this year, the State Statistics Committee said.

The hike was triggered by the government-ordered increase in prices of electricity and gas, which became effective in April and was introduced to comply with International Monetary Fund requirements.
