at the Cabinet of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council of Council 49.9 billion UAH were allocated for housing and communal subsidies for 3.2 million Ukrainian families.

The amount of subsidies may be increased, and the government also plans to soften the amount of assistance provided. The new rule is to increase the permissible amount of debt.

The subsidy is determined because in the state there is no debt for utilities and if the debt is extended for 3 months, the debt does not exceed 40 non-compliant minimum incomes (680 UAH) at a time for all services. The draft new resolution on the rules for the recognition of subsidies suggests that it is acceptable to obstruct the household economy for 680 UAH for one utility service.

Housing and communal services tariffs. What kind of advancement will there be?

During the war period in Ukraine, a moratorium on some housing and public utility tariffs has been ordered, in which case services may become unnecessarily expensive.

By its resolution, the Cabinet of Ministers defended the increased availability of hot water, central Called scorching and gas for an hour after I will become a military man even after my death.

The moratorium does not apply to the supply of cold water and electricity, so their availability is not fixed.


The price of light during the war has already increased by 70% and reached 2.64 UAH/kW-year. There is an opportunity to save on the “nightly” tariff – for medical professionals, 1 kilowatt-year costs 1.23 UAH.

According to the words of the Minister of Energy of Ukraine Herman Galushchenko, the possibility of further increasing the availability of electricity for the population was not visible. Current tariffs will be reduced until the end of the 2024 season – until the end of the burning season.

The need for this term was explained by the increased availability of electricity, as well as the warehouse tariff for water. Through criticism of the authorities, who had already praised the decision of the NKREKP in 2023, they were told off, the pro-Commission again turns to this food. The project for increasing water tariffs is planned to be submitted for consideration at upcoming meetings.
