In Russia, fines for non-payment of utility services are canceled

In Russia, fines for non-payment of utility services are canceled

The Russian government forbade until January 1, 2021 to charge penalties for non-payment of utilities. The decision was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

As they say "Vedomosti", the head of the Cabinet of Ministers signed the document on April 2, but so far the resolution has not been published. It refers to the suspension of interest for late payment by the population of housing and communal services and contributions for overhaul. Management companies and HOAs will cancel penalties for late payment under resource supply agreements.

The fact that the Ministry of Construction prepared proposals on a special procedure for paying housing and communal services was announced on April 2 by Andrei Turchak, deputy chairman of the Federation Council. This is due to amendments to the law on the protection of the population and territories from emergency situations.

The Far Eastern energy company has suspended interest charges, however, these measures are associated with the closure of offices and the inability to accept payment for utility services. The moratorium is more designed for citizens who do not have the ability to remotely pay for services, as well as customers, where DEK cash desks are the only way to pay. Penalties will not be charged to customers for electricity, hot water and heating services.

Also last week in the Primorsky Territory due to coronavirus decided do not charge interest and fines for untimely paid utility services. The measures will be in effect until the epidemiological situation improves.
