To spontaneous protest actions against cancellation of privileges can not to join, the deputy chief of legal department of the Center of service of sales of energy of Open Society " considers; Mosenergo Elena Berezkina. Elena Anatolevna has analysed corresponding documents of capital level and has shared conclusions with our newspaper.

So, for example, in Moscow as in the subject of Federation, measures of social support of Muscovites according to laws of a city of Moscow will be carried out, and in other subjects - according to statutory acts of local administrations .

However, now a word privileges it is replaced with a word combination measures of social support .

Donors also - paid half of cost for actually consumed electricity earlier, now it is 50 % from the specification .

On the other hand, these specifications are not reconsidered ten years (are confirmed by the Moscow government in 1994). Consumption, as it is known, grows, including in a life. In the Moscow region especially - by data Mosenergo annually on 5 %.
