About the fact that during the year, from February last year to February this year, tariffs for utility services increased, in total and on average, by 12.7 percent, writes “NBN”, referring to  official website of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine (Gosstat).

In accordance with the State Statistics Service data, in addition to electricity (annual growth was 69.7 percent), as well as “blue fuel”, hot water and  heat supply, which remained within the same limits, the cost of the following services increased:

  • garbage collection by 4.5 percent;
  • services for management of multi-apartment residential buildings —by 4.2 percent;
  • maintenance and repair — by 3 percent.

However, only for two utilities prices showed the opposite trend, that is, cheaper:

  • water supply/sewage became more affordable by 0.8 percent (only in certain regions, mostly  – also an increase in price);
  • for sewage – by 0.5 percent.
