The authorities of Kazakhstan froze tariffs for housing and communal services for six months

“Tariffs for & nbsp; utilities not & nbsp; will rise until & nbsp; 1 & md nbsp; July 2022 said in the & nbsp; message (quoted by & nbsp; RIA Novosti).

Earlier, the President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev proposed to impose a moratorium on the & nbsp; rise in tariffs for & nbsp; housing and utility services for & nbsp; 180 days because of the & nbsp; riots in & nbsp; & nbsp; country. He also ordered to introduce state regulation of prices for & nbsp; socially significant products, including flour, bread, pasta, salt, eggs, buckwheat, rice, sugar, sunflower and & nbsp; butter, beef and & nbsp; chicken, milk, potatoes.

In addition, the authorities have set price caps for & nbsp; petrol, diesel and & nbsp; car gas. It was because of the & nbsp; double fuel price rise in the country that protests began, which later turned into riots.

Due to the & nbsp; aggravation of the situation in & nbsp; Kazakhstan, a state of emergency was imposed. The government resigned. According to & nbsp; Tokayev's & nbsp; & nbsp; events in & nbsp; country are & nbsp; armed and & nbsp; trained bandits & raquo;, including foreigners. He & nbsp; asked for help from the CSTO country, they & nbsp; sent peacekeepers.

On January 8 & nbsp; it became known that & nbsp; 180 gas companies were suspected of a price collusion. Most of them are located in & nbsp; Mangystau Oblast (85), where protests erupted. Four companies & nbsp; have already been fined.
