Subsidies today are the only way to somehow make ends meet for citizens whose earnings are far from average. Not to mention pensioners who try to survive on 1500 UAH. And, oddly enough, they do it, although the conditions created by the government are becoming increasingly unbearable. This time enterprising officials have developed a number of methods to deprive as many Ukrainians desired discount on communal.
This year, perhaps, will lose benefits for utilities about 30% of subsidies. After all, according to the powers that be, these people hide their real income. However, the fact that it happens, that though as-that to survive, the government as always is silent.
First of all will deprive of subsidies of the unemployed who subsequently checks will be shadow workers. Inspectors will be able to monitor the income of all unemployed, as well as their place of residence online. The workers also will lose their discounts, there is nothing to fatten – left to work abroad "the good life", so get the highest possible rates.
In the meantime, the bureaucrats in the anticipation that such innovations will help save the Treasury about 10 billion hryvnia. Well, on the saved money we will live - so we will live..Or not?
– When the inspectors will have the right of control online for a real income and actual living of subsidianes that in Ukraine the number of unemployed and qualify for state aid, and to work abroad is several billion will reduce the payment, – says the expert on housing the Ukrainian Institute of policy analysis and management Andrew Nikonchuk.
At that time, the Ukrainians desperately complain about the impermanence of life and the harsh living conditions, they are davnym have become better to live. Otherwise, as you will explain that every year allocated subsidies less and less. For example, in 2018, 2.6 million families received their right to a discount, which is 54.9% less than in 2017.this Means that the amount of funds allocated for subsidies has also decreased. So for 7 months of subsidies allocated money decreased by 4.2 times or 2.3 billion UAH. falling to the numbers in 734 mln. compared to 2017.
According to officials, this situation is observed due to the stability in utility tariffs and the growth of the minimum wage. And in reality, all thanks to the tightening of the rules for obtaining benefits, because the presence of a car or apartment more than 120 squares, as well as houses more than 200 square meters – this is an excuse to leave you without a subsidy. And the fact that the car can be the only source of income, and the house got inherited – no one cares.
In order to still receive a subsidy in 2019, in may, all applicants will need to submit an application, and, of course, an income Declaration to the office of social security.protections. In order for the bureaucrats to make a decision on granting a subsidy, there are three ways of checking: preventive (when a citizen applies for a subsidy), current (when they pay attention to additional earnings when receiving a discount), and retrospective (when they check all payments for the last 3 years).
While officials say that among Ukrainians there are many scammers who can safely do without subsidies, according to the consultant on social protection of the Institute of local development Anton Levitsky, this figure reaches a maximum of 2-3%. It turns out that the rest will be deprived of discounts for no apparent reason, ie on a far-fetched occasion.
While the rulers tell how Ukrainians live well, the country is on the outskirts of the world ranking on the quality of life. According to the results of the study "Quality of life of countries – 2019", which is published on the service Numbeo, Ukraine took 62nd place, once again among the outsiders. Ukraine was in the top ten with Thailand, Kazakhstan, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. And after that, the government will say that the living conditions in the country are improving? So how it is possible in such situation to deprive of citizens of the only opportunity not to spend on a communal flat the lion's share of the income?!
