Intentional delay to assign subsidies demonstrated by certain government authorities, some city mayors and heads of regions means they deprive citizens of a direct assistance to reduce bills for heating and utilities, announced Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a Government meeting on Wednesday, November 4.

He reminded that already 4 million Ukrainian families had obtained the mentioned financial assistance: "Practically each third Ukrainian citizen receives direct financial aid from the Ukrainian state".

"The amount of subsidies currently received by the Ukrainian citizens greatly helps and compensates for the expenses of households connected with the change of tariffs, for those who need that", stressed the Head of Government.

The Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko informed that the worst performance in the assigning of subsidies is demonstrated by Odessa region – about 40%. Low showings are in Chernivtsi, Zakarpattia and Luhansk regions.

The Prime Minister instructed to immediately forward to these areas a government commission to accelerate the process of obtaining subsidies.
