“There are government support measures, we are talking about the economics of enterprises, the government has the opportunity to apply measures to support socially vulnerable groups.

In general, we look at the volume of fuel, it increased by 25% within nine months, that is, consumption increased by about 225-250 thousand tons per month during this time,” Satkaliyev added.
