Despite the fact that tariffs are determined in regions and the local authorities are responsible for them, the Government will do its best to make these tariffs be fair for every region. Prime Minister of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych disclosed at the Government sitting, “Cabinet pres office” informed.

Opening the sitting, the Prime Minister noted that the current problem of sharp increase in tariffs is a result of unsuccessful activity of the previous governments which adopted decisions on tariff increase ignoring timely creation of the controlling mechanism and respective compensation for citizens.

The Office of Public Prosecutor and Government Price Inspection are completing control of the tariff reasonableness at local level. On completion the necessary organization conclusions will be drawn and decisions on standardization of reasonably increased tariffs adopted.

At the same time the Head of Government stressed that only by common efforts of central and local authorities it would be possible to introduce order into communal tariffs. In this connection the First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov and Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Rybak are commissioned to immediately draft a proper mechanism of interaction.

“In every region there are different conditions of housing and communal complex, different conditions of supply, for example, water supply, and correspondingly price formation and etc. But it is wrong when payment of housing and communal services is sharply different between the regions”, Viktor Yanukovych said.

The Prime Minister has also focused attention on the necessity to stop politicization of tariff issue. The residents of regions should not experience the political process and the government authorities shall be concerned with problem solving of the state.

“We will demand efficient performance of official duties despite of party membership and flags. We have an equal approach and will demand equally – in spite of the fact if the party forms the parliamentary coalition or not. On the contrary, we will demand more from the coalition parties”, Viktor Yanukovych noted.
