MOSCOW, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. People’s Internet portal dubbed “Together with Crimea” has been launched on Tuesday.
The project organized by volunteers of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea aims at “unbiased informing of people with fair visual information”. Any person can print from the website and spread propagandistic materials, including leaflets, badges, stickers and posters.
For instance, infographics posted at the portal gives an illustrated idea about development of health care, education, pension systems, social security measures in Russia and Ukraine and their main numerical figures are compared.
Authors of the website affirm that now “Ukrainian health care system cannot do without charity donations and additional payments for treatment by patients. State funding covers around 60%.” Meanwhile, in Russia “state funding of the health care system makes it possible to fund fully free medical services to people”. Initiators of the project compare pensions and salaries in Russia, Crimea and the Crimean city of Sevastopol. For instance, according to their reports, average salary in Russia makes 25,511 rubles (around $703), 11,105 rubles (around $306) in Crimea, 12,039 rubles (around $332) in Sevastopol, average pension in Russia makes 9,917 rubles (around $273), 5,674 rubles (around $156) in Crimea and 5,674 rubles in Sevastopol.
