The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine plans to reduce the size of subsidies provided by tightening the criteria for receiving them.
Comments about this correspondent of ГолосUA Director of the Institute of energy research Dmitry marunych.
“Next year, apparently, will rise gas prices (late October – November) and objectively it will lead to a need to adjust the amount of subsidies, which in the draft budget is. There are 50, then 55 billion UAH fixed. They plan allegedly 58, then 50, then 55 billion, but we understand that all this is conditional,” – said the expert.
According to Dmitry Marunich, you first need to understand what the size of the tariff (of gas – Ed.) and then on this basis, to consider.
“And I think that this is not an exact figure. As for whether to further reduce the number of subsidianes, it is a difficult question. I think that in the Cabinet there are such plans, but whether they will be implemented, it is difficult to say. There rather will tighten the criteria for granting subsidies and it affects, maybe not in quantity, but the amount of the subsidy to the household,” he said.
Recall that the amount of subsidy incorporated in the draft Budget for next year, you can adjust to the end of the year.
