“Next year’s budget stipulates that subsidies from the state Treasury will spend 55 billion UAH. However, how justified is this figure hard to judge. First, we still don’t know what the price of gas, consequently, the cost of heating. Second, we still do not know the number of people applying for subsidies during the next heating season”, – said the author.

At the same time, it is estimated the Ministry of social policy, real income growth this year was 35%, so the number of grantees should be reduced by about 10% to 5-5. 5 million families.

In particular, the heating season starts October 1, will take into account the incomes for the first half of 2017. And for the summer of computation of the grant (may 1) – revenues for the second half of this year.
