According to him, state policy is aimed at not-raising tariffs for all citizens of Ukraine, regardless of age.

“We have a government policy aimed at ensuring that tariffs do not increase. Now we see the opportunity to fix the price, which is now, and guarantee its non-restoration not only for the elderly but for all citizens of Ukraine. We proceed from the fact that this winter, absolutely any Ukrainian who needs this, regardless of age, should be protected,” said Honcharuk.
