With the advent of this year, the Ukrainian government returned the right to companies supplying housing and communal services to carry out financial punishment of debtors, lifting the ban on disconnections and levying various fines, supposedly to “improve discipline” of citizens, as stated in NEURC.
About the maximum amount of debts and the time period for which they are overdue, household consumers in Ukraine are “allowed” to accumulate until housing is “cut off” from the supply of electrical energy, NBN writes, citing interesting material published on Facebook -account of Andrian Prokip, an expert in the field of energy at the Ukrainian Institute of the Future.
Based on Andrian Prokip’s words posted on the above-mentioned social network, Ukrainians will be massively deprived of electricity supply under such conditions:
- the amount of debt exceeded the mark of 3 000 hryvnia;
- payment of the debt was ignored for a period exceeding 2 months.
It should be noted , that all the above-described “norms” will apply only to the part of Ukraine where no active hostilities are taking place, that is, they will not affect territories recognized as temporarily occupied/front-line/front-line.
Previously we wrote about how the head of NEURE explained why citizens would be cut off for debts.
