tariffs should be accompanied by a broad program of social assistance. The Government
will allocate UAH12.5 billion for benefits and subsidies to the low-income
groups as compensation for the change in prices and tariffs," Prime Minister
of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk
emphasized at a meeting of the Government on Saturday, February 14.
Minister also said that next week the Cabinet will issue a new approach to obtaining
benefits and subsidies: "It is simple, fast and efficient. The person will
actually fill in only two documents and these documents will come home by post."
"If you are
eligible for benefits and subsidies, you should fill in a few lines and send back
to the social services - and you will automatically be assigned privileges and subsidies,"
the Prime Minister added.
