The size of payments for gas and housing and communal services for recipients of subsidies will not change after the possible resampling. This was stated by Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko, reports “Еспресо.TV”.
“The probable allocation of gas prices on the grantees is in no way affected because they are paying and will pay a fixed amount. The people who will feel that they are not able to fully pay for housing and utilities or gas needs to contact the Department of social protection to apply for a grant” – said Rozenko.
Pavlo Rozenko stressed that any decision regarding changes in the price of gas should be taken after changes to the new system of subsidies.
“These changes, which have occurred in the system of subsidies needs to be corrected. Only after correcting the situation in the system of subsidies, when they removed those problems which are of concern to citizens, we can consider the issue of changing the gas prices. There are appropriate instructions and government Committee, which I chair, and the Prime Minister, and I hope that in the near future the Ministry will perform their system of subsidies will make any necessary adjustments,” he said.
We will remind, the Cabinet said, has canceled subsidies for natural gas consumers without meters.
