Tariffs for housing and communal services in Russia are not planned to be increased above the already planned level of indexation, Irek Faizullin, Minister of Construction and Housing and Public Utilities of Russia, told reporters today, March 28.
“The decision on the indexation of tariffs is recorded in government decrees, and we do not plan to exceed tariffs after July 1,” Fayzullin said.
He also added that various scenarios are being worked out, but, despite inflation, the issue of raising tariffs above the previously set 4% is not being considered.
Recall that tariffs for housing and communal services change once a year – from July 1. The average change in the index for the country in 2022 will not exceed 4%.
Earlier it was reported that utility tariffs in Russia will increase by 3.5-5% in 2022. At the same time, the largest increase is expected in St. Petersburg, Crimea, Sevastopol, Chechnya and Tatarstan, lawyer Ivan Solovyov believes.
