Also, according to the Memorandum with the IMF by next month in Ukraine needs to introduce a monthly fee for heat. The website “Today” figured out how it can change the life of Ukrainians in the last month of August.
The new dollar exchange rate and inflation
Summer – the period of stabilization of the hryvnia. The dollar the last few months ranges from 26 UAH. “This occurred against the backdrop of postponing the next tranche of the IMF loan under the extended cooperation programme for the autumn, and according to some – and at the end of the year. Upon receipt of the tranche, the hryvnia would have been even stronger. On the side of national currencies play such factors as the relatively high prices of food positions of Ukrainian exports and net sales of foreign currency by the population”, – says senior analyst “Alpari” Vadim Iosub.
In August, according to analysts, the U.S. dollar exchange rate against the hryvnia will fluctuate in the range of 25.5 – 26.0 hryvnia per dollar.
In addition, summer is also observed and a decrease in prices – deflation. The main reason for this trend is the new crop of agricultural products, which leads to cheaper vegetables and fruits. “For 17 years, since 2000, in August deflation was observed 11 times. The current year likely will be no exception and you can expect a drop in prices in August in comparison with July on 0,2-0,5%”, – predicts Vadim Iosub.

In may, the subpoenas went to the recruiting station more than 14 thousand people, how many will be called in August is unknown at this time. The draft campaign budget a separate resolution will be determined by the government.

In addition to the call for military service in may we also began the conscription of Ukrainians with higher education who graduated from the military Department. Reserve officers are considered “fit” to 43 years. As conscripts, they have to serve a year and a half. By the way, a few years ago the end of the military Department at the University was given the right to defer. In just seven years, Ukraine has accumulated more than 90 thousand reserve officers.
After receiving the agenda Ukrainians have to arrive at a certain collection point and within the time specified in the subpoena. If the reservist was not on the agenda in voenkomat, are not reported to the police station about the change of residence, he faces a fine in the amount of UAH 85-119. For repeated violation – from UAH 170 to 255 hryvnias. By the way, according to the law, employers are required to inform the military about their employees of military age.(part 4 of article 34 of the law of Ukraine “On military duty and military service” from 25.03. 1992 No. 2232-XII).
Ukraine by August must enter the monthly fee for heating
In the Memorandum with the International monetary Fund (IMF), Ukraine has committed itself in August to introduce a subscription fee for heating. This means that part of the cost of heat will transfer to the non-heating season. The cost of license fee for heat, dependent on the infrastructure of the city, can vary in the range of 100 hryvnia.
The introduction of a “tariff for delivery of heating” actually means that the tariff will be divided into two components: the direct cost of heat and fee for infrastructure maintenance. The first component you will have to pay only during the heating season, and monthly fee – all year round. At the request of the website “Today” member of the National Commission, which performs state regulation in energy and utilities (NKREKU) Ruslan Mashliakivsky explained: “the establishment of two-part tariffs for Central heating can be an exclusive initiative of the supplier of heat.”

As explained in the Department of heat NKREKU, the supplier must agree on the decision on the introduction of a license fee with the local authority, to undertake discussions and only after that to submit their calculations to the Commission. In NKREKU calculations will check and make the decision to approve the tariff or not.
That all providers be forced to introduce a subscription fee at the moment. Fee for heating is already in Ivano-Frankivsk, Berdyansk, Dneprorudnoe, Lviv, Vinnytsia. Thus, in the heating season the residents of Lviv pay 1266,5 hryvnia for each used gigacalories of heat. 53,4 hryvnia of this amount – the cost of license fee. In non-heating season, for example, in summer, for heating you have to pay a monthly fee 26,3 hryvnia.
“The structure of the one-part and two-part tariff contains some components of spending that are included in the full cost of services. The difference is in the form of payments for heat. The same expenditure is covered either in the heating season – the straight-line rate, or over the entire year – a two-part tariff”, – says Ruslan Maslakowski.
Soar rental prices
At the end of summer is traditionally grows the price of rental apartments in the regional centers. Realtors explain: because of the influx of students and seasonal workers the demand for property is growing and with a steady supply this leads to an increase in prices by 15-20%. Realtor Maxim Baborak sure: the seasonal growth of prices in late summer will only affect the budget segment of real estate. According to experts, apartments can rise in price by 20%. “It’s the off-season.Tenants can watch two or three options and choose something. At the end of August this will not happen. While the second will look, first to have to pass. If now the apartment can be 4.5 thousand to shoot in August, and 5.5 million will be taken”, – says Maxim Baborak.

At the same time, the representative Committee of the Association of realtors of Ukraine Eduard Brazas sure that prices will rise by no more than 10%.
“By September the prices can grow on 10%, I don’t think it will significantly. And so now more expensive utilities, and landlords the payments for the tenants. If the person is not very professional, and made some absolutely fantastic “wishlist” to take the apartment it will be difficult. If the apartment a few months idle, even for the most greedy the landlord is a signal that you need to reduce the price,” says Edward brazas.
Experts advise: it is better to look for apartment in July or first half August. At the same time for 5-6 thousand hryvnia can demand from the lessor of the minimum set of equipment and furniture (table, sofa, chairs, washing machine, refrigerator) and fresh repair.
