The Government of Ukraine switches to the hebdomadal regime of procedure analysis of subsidy assignment granted to the citizens of Ukraine, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk informed at a meeting of the crisis energy staff on Monday, August 3.

He has underlined that without an effective system of subsidies "it will not be able to provide the high level of payments for energy."

Arseniy Yatsenyuk has emphasized that "there is a process already under way, but there is also sabotage and subversion" from certain representatives of local authorities. In particular, he has pointed out Sumy and Kharkiv regions.

"It has been allocated billions from the budget to each family in need to cover an appropriate amount of subsidy. People get a payment bill worth a thousand hryvnias, of which the sum worth UAH 500-800 should be compensated by the Government, but people hear lie, they are deliberately dissuaded from applying for a subsidy and money is pulled out of the pockets of Ukrainian citizens, the money provided by the state, however the local authorities just refuse to assign the housing subsidies. People are threatened either with fines or a seizure of property. So, this is a political sabotage against the country's citizens," stressed the Head of Government.

The Prime Minister stressed that he had appealed to the Prosecutor General's office of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine “to immediately launch criminal proceedings regarding the inaction of local government staff in the issue of assigning subsidies and, in fact, robbery of the citizens of the country."
