Local authorities in Ukraine on the background of the cold snap should make decisions on the date of the beginning of the heating season. This was stated by Vice Prime Minister – Minister of regional development, construction, housing and utilities Gennadiy Zubko during a selector meeting on preparation for the heating season.

Today, the crane, which includes heating, releases the funds, sign the contract, sets tariffs, is at the municipal level. I appeal to the mayor with a serious requirement to monitor the temperature on the street,” said Zubko.
