Klymenko published the data related to amount of subsidies, which were qietly clipped
Since the beginning of the future heating season, Ukrainians will receive a clipped subsidy. The resolution on the reduction of the social norm was adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, Oleksandr Klymenko – the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” party – stated.
“Social norm is the state parameters, which allow to get a subsidy. It includes housing area and volume of gas. The more this norm differs from actually used heating, the less subsidy can be obtained by Ukrainian,” – the politician writes.
You can learn more about new norms for gas, which will come into force from May 1 and will be launched by the beginning of the new heating season, on Facebook page of Klymenko. The politician wondered and figured out the effect on the pocket of Ukrainians.
“For instance, a family that consists of three people live in a flat (house) of 76 square meters. If the gas heating is individual, it will be necessary to pay extra from UAH 222 to 248 per month. If the heating is central, you will have to pay extra from UAH 888 to 993 per month”, – the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” party writes.
According to Klymenko, the government offered this option (and already implemented) of saving at the request of the IMF. However, it was designed to balance Ukrainian budget.
“During the autumn-winter period of the last year, Ukrainians were able to pay only 63.4% of utility payments. It is extremely low index. About half of the country’s households had to formalize subsidies. According to my calculations, by the end of this heating season, the arrears to utility services will exceed UAH 32 billion. It will lead to the fact that households will be on the verge of bankruptcy. After that the power will raise tariffs again”, – Oleksandr Klymenko explains the whole complexity of the situation.
The politician is confident: a vicious circle can be broken only by establishing fair tariffs.
“How to east the tariff burden for Ukrainians? It was answered by the team of the «Uspishna Kraina» in September. Its representatives sent finished project of new and fair Tax Code to authorities for adoption. In its turn, the power threw it out”, – Klymenko summed up.
