In Ukraine, next year, utility rates will continue to grow, and the rise in prices will not stop either.
A disappointing forecast was voiced by an expert on housing and communal services Kristina Nenno on the air of the TV channel “Ukraine 24“.
“People should understand that if compensation comes from local budgets, then this is also their means. Vodokanals have already raised tariffs. The residents of Berdyansk, Zaporozhye and Uman will have the highest tariff. Unfortunately, this is only 20%. In what sense? In the fact that this is not the final – next year we can get all 50% and 100% – this will simply be an overwhelming burden for all consumers, “she said.
According to her, the tariff for electricity for business in January will be at the level of 7 hryvnia per 1 kWh, and at the end of the heating season it will rise to 10 hryvnia.
