At the regular session of the Regional Council, the deputies adopted an appeal to the government to reduce tariffs for natural gas for individuals. 71 deputies voted for this decision.

Transcarpathian Regional Council Chairman Volodymyr Chubirko commented on the appeal, which was adopted at the today's session.

"I am grateful to the deputies of the Regional Council for having supported Transcarpathian community today. The Regional Council adopted an appeal to the central government demanding to revise tariffs for energy. We gave Kyiv the signal that Transcarpathians find existing tariffs inflated", - the Chairman of the Regional Council wrote on his page on facebook.

He added: "A third of gas equipment of inhabitants of the region is unaccounted, and even during heating season, people pay 7,18 per cubic meter. That is residents of the region can not even take advantage of the preferential tariff. People's incomes have not increased, and prices have increased significantly. People rose and claimed their rights. Deputies fully support them."

"Therefore in our appeal we demand to:
1. Suspend the decision of the National Commission, which sets tariffs for energy.
2. Reduce the set gas tariffs to affordable level.
3. Offer real mechanisms to stimulate private households to switch to alternative energy sources
4. Overcome corruption in the energy sector, minimize the impact of oligarchical groups in this industry.
5. Introduce moratorium on tariff increase," - Volodymyr Chubirko said.

The improvement in the pension system after the adoption of a package of laws necessary for reforms in this area cannot be expected immidiately.

This opinion was expressed by the director of the Institute of Demography and Social Studies named after MV Ptukha of the NAS of Ukraine Ella Libanova at the meeting of the "round table," the "Ukrinform" reported.

"Do not promise a bright future immediately after the adoption of the law. Citizens will start receiving funded pensions in 25 years. Those will be the first ones, since the retirement age here is 60, and 60 minus 35 gives 25" - Libanova said.

She stressed that the transition period, when incomes and, respectively, the Pension Fund budget will be reducing, would be about twice as long.

"Because this period begins when the first worker starts paying part of contributions not to the PAYG fund but to the saving fund. And it ends when the last person receiving pension only from the PAYG system dies. In any case, it is no less than 50 years, and we must understand that," - the expert said.

She said that for the next 50 years the state will have to compensate the Pension Fund of Ukraine for the costs of the transition period.

Has the Department of Municipal Economy clasiffied their salaries? (Documents)

28 May 2015 10:32  119100016 0101028
This was reported on his page on facebook by the deputy mayor of Uzhgorod Yaroslav Shafar. He has sent an appeal to the prosecutor.

"The Department of Municipal Economy has classified their wages. I do not think they are so big that they need to conceal them so carefully... But, according to preliminary data, for the first quarter the Department staff received approximately 100,000 UAH of bonuses and 17,600 UAH of financial aissistance. Apparently they believe that they do their job perfectly. Time will tell... Meanwhile almost all utilities are unprofitable, the privatization program for the last three years has been existing only on paper and, if not for land sales, the Department of Municipal Economy would be a complete bankrupt. So what do they receive bonuses for?", - the deputy aks.

As you know, hiding of public information is a crime. Well, we are waiting for the response of the prosecutors.
