MOSCOW, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Unemployed citizens in Crimea and Sevastopol began to receive benefits in full and without delay, the Russian Labor Ministry's press service said on Thursday.
Benefits are paid personally to citizens at post offices, but not by bank transfer as before. It is temporary, while the banking system is being formed in Crimea, the ministry explains.
All unemployed people in Crimea and Sevastopol were informed that they would receive benefits at post offices, the press service cited Labor and Social Protection Minister Maxim Topilin as saying. He noted the Federal Labor Agency (Rostrud) had done much organizational work. Thanks to Rostrud, residents in Crimea who were registered by Ukrainian services, did not have to undergo any additional re-registration to receive benefits, the minister noted.
