KIEV, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The payment of social allowances in Ukraine is being delayed because of blocking of state institutions by opposition activists.
“Regretabbly, we were unable to settle the issue of the payment of delayed allowances before December 10 because of the work of state institutions, first of all, the government and the finance ministry, has been blocked,” Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on his Facebook page on Tuesday. “This is what I have warned people about: actions of irresponsible peanut politicians are harmful for ordinary people.”
On Monday, according to the prime minister, the state treasury transferred 800 million hryvnias (100 million U.S. dollars) to be paid in unemployment benefits, temporary disability benefits, maternity benefits, etc. “I am very sorry we were unable to do it earlier because of the blockade of state structures. I want to tell you once again that state agencies should work stably and consistently,” he stressed.
