The existing mechanism of accrual and payment of subsidies will continue to be implemented, and everyone who needs help will receive it. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during A Question Time for the Government at the Verkhovna Rada.
"With the start of a new heating season, we will spare no effort to protect every citizen of Ukraine through the subsidy mechanism", the Head of Government said.
At the same time, he stressed the need to verify the recipients of subsidies. "We conducted an" inventory ". The first checks showed that only in the Kyiv region 20 thousand people receive double subsidies. They simultaneously receive double payments. However, this money belongs to the people. We have no right to close our eyes on these abuses", Volodymyr Groysman claimed.
The Prime Minister assured that no one will deprive of the right to receive social assistance, adding that this is an important issue for him, no matter what’s the price for (for fuel and services).
In late August, the Government launched a register of subsidy recipients, where citizens can check information about all recipients of subsidies. The Head of Government constantly emphasizes that the mechanism of subsidies, as a form of social protection will not be halted. Instead, it becomes more targeted. In addition, the Government is preparing to kick off a subsidy monetization mechanism. Moreover, monetization of part of saved resources has already started. The sum of payment for energy or gas savings makes up about UAH 700.
