MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin urged to establish order with payments in the housing and public utility sector. “Clear-cut rules of forming payments should be determined,” he said at a meeting of the Economic Council presidium on Thursday.
“They (payments) should be pass-through for all regions and should be based on objective economic figures, for instance, inflation rate for the previous year,” he noted.
Putin recalled that the law restricting growth of prices for utility services in a long run is already enacted. “It should be really put into practice, but should not remain a mere declaration,” the president noted.
