Expenses for communal services
Belarusians spend less for communal services than citizens of neighboring countries. The sum makes just 11% of the average monthly check. The data are posted at the communal awareness portal. To compare, apartments in Lithuania and Poland cost up to one third of the earnings, in Russia and Kazakhstan – about 16-17%. The most expensive are the rent bills in Ukraine – almost a half of the earned income. Traditionally, the most expensive heating is in Lithuania, the maintenance – in Poland.
