DPR authorities announced increase in pensions

In the near future, the DPR pensioners will receive an increase in pensions. It was announced by the Head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko on the TV channel "Union".

According to him, in the country there is a phased indexation of pensions and public sector wages.

'As I promised, there is a 5% raise in the public sector wages, and we have promised our seniors to raise their pensions in this quarter. We will publish the decree the very next week. A promise was made, and it will be kept, this quarter, pensioners will receive an increase in pensions,' said Zakharchenko.

In the DPR, unlike in Ukraine, the tariffs for housing and communal services have not been increased. Today, the difference in the payment is 2-3 times in favour of Donetsk.

At the same time, in Kiev, the growth of rates is now one of the main themes in the rhetoric of the parties playing against Poroshenko and calling for early elections to the Verkhovnaya Rada.

In the near future, Ukraine is facing a few more waves of tariff increases.
