The correspondent of ГолосUA said the President of the Ukrainian analytical center Alexander Okhrimenko.

The increase of tariffs for gas for the population will lead to increased utility services for Ukrainians by 20 percent or more, said the economist.

“Gas prices increased by almost 25%, heating has risen by 15%, most likely, cold water and Sewerage 10 percent jump. On average, the rise in price of utilities, if all the “wholesale” to count will be up to 20%. This figure is very average, depending on regions it may be more”, – said Alexander Okhrimenko.

According to the economist, in the regions of heating, as a rule, more expensive than in the capital. In some regions, the heating can grow in two times.
