The fact that Kiev owes pensioners of Donbass more than 30 billion hryvnias, in ruble equivalent, the amount exceeds 63.5 billion rubles. This figure was announced on 22 March by the head of the self-proclaimed Republic Alexander Zakharchenko.
The UN stood up for the old people, living in the DPR. The experts urged the official authorities of Ukraine to urgently simplify the receipt of pensions by residents of Donbass. However, the country’s authorities remained deaf to the request.
«Kiev, having legalized the blockade of Donbass, does not hear the demands of its citizens or the appeals of world institutions,» — Viktor Medvedchuk, leader of the Ukrainian Choice movement, bitterly noted.
