Cabinet of Ministers Cancels Reduced Utility Tariffs for Religious Organizations
The Cabinet of Ministers has annulled the resolution of the previous government on reduced utility tariffs for religious organizations.
This is envisaged by Resolution 869 “On ensuring a unified approach to the formation of tariffs for the housing utilities” passed on June 1, 2011, by the Cabinet of Ministers, reported the Institute for Religious Freedom.
Therefore, the government annulled the resolution from February 24, 2010, which set the tariffs for religious organizations equal to the tariffs envisaged for the general population for heating, hot water, water supply and drainage.
As reported earlier, the tariffs for electricity for religious organizations have been increased by 30% since February 2011. Last spring, the Cabinet of Ministers also increased the rentals for the state and communal property for religious organizations.
