In too time, it doesn't exclude that if not Tymoshenko becomes the president, these figures can change, but there are they more or less, refused to predict.
"People who live in private houses with gas heating" especially will suffer from such considerable increase, - the analyst of MTsPI Alexander Zholud speaks. - But people have no place to disappear, they hardly will pass to firewood and coal".
"The communal flat in the cities too will rise in price, but it is less, for 50-60% because the shaft of non-payments with which to fight much more difficult will begin, than in rural areas, after all to disconnect from heat of one separately taken defaulter difficultly and expensively, and to disconnect all house if the part of residents doesn't pay only, it is illegal", - adds Zholud.
Gas for the municipal enterprises, according to the estimates of the newspaper, will rise in price by the end of the year for 95-100%. And it will pour out in increase in cost of heat and hot water at 65-70%.
