Minsker: Rise In Price Of Utility Service Has Something To Do With Politics


Capital residents associate the rise in price of housing and communal services with the growth of public debt.

Prices for housing and communal services in the capital have grown – this is a well-known fact. Belsat journalists have asked Minsk citizens to what extent this fact can be justified by objective reasons, and to what extent – by inefficiency and corruption.

"The public debt is growing, the state has to pay it off. And where does it take money from? So, taxes are growing, everything grows except salaries," – a capital resident says.

Another one notes:

"The prices for products have stayed the same, only the cost of utility services has changed. I think that it has something to do with political issues."
