KIEV, November 11. /TASS/. Ukraine’s authorities have set December 1 as a deadline for state bodies and enterprises on the eastern territories controlled by militias to reregister, Minister of Cabinet of Ministers Ostap Semerak told ICTV channel on Tuesday.
Around 137,000 Ukrainians from the regions in the country’s east have already reregistered on the territories controlled by Kiev in order to receive pensions and salaries, the minister said.
Ukrainian Finance Minister Oleksandr Shlapak said Monday Kiev does not count on the enterprises located in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, which earlier accounted for 30% of the country’s revenues.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Kiev temporarily suspended social payments to the residents of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, which are not controlled by Kiev.
The deputy prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Andrey Purgin, condemned the move saying the Ukrainian government is violating the law by failing to transfer funds to Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
However, Donetsk authorities continue transferring money to Ukraine’s Pension Fund. In October, they transferred over $23 million to Kiev. Ukraine’s overdue payments of pensions over past four months have reached $120 million, head of Donetsk’s administration Igor Martynov said earlier this month.
The self-proclaimed republics in eastern Ukraine, home to 3.8 million people, do not have their own financial system, bank or any mechanism of distributing payments. The treasury account used for payments is registered in Kiev.
