Tariffs for housing and communal services in Russia in 2020 will grow by an average of 4%
Utility bills in 2020 will increase by 4% on average in Russia. Prices across the country will rise once - on July 1, and not twice, as this year.
When setting the tariff, the government primarily focuses on inflation, so the average price increase in the country is expected to be at the same level - 4%. As reported "News", growth for different types of utilities in the region may vary, but in total should not exceed the limit indices.
The highest level is set for the Chechen Republic - 6,5%, and the lowest index for the Nenets Autonomous Okrug - 2,4%. In most regions, it is 3,6–4%. The difference in the index value is explained by the needs of the regions, for example, the need to repair worn-out communal infrastructure.
Containment of tariff growth is also due to the low standard of living of citizens. Since socially unprotected groups of the population have a consumer basket of 70% of expenses, they often do not have enough money for a communal apartment.
