The last sitting in the group on economical issues in 2018 year did not bring the expected results: the Ukrainian party continued to move away from real work on practical mechanisms for the restoration of socio-economical ties.

“Today, Kiev’s representatives almost openly stated that the real working mechanism proposed by the ICRC for paying pensions to low-mobility citizens is incompatible with Ukrainian legislation. Against this background, it is especially important to obtain an official written position of the Ukrainian party on ensuring the availability of pension and social payments to citizens living in the Republics.
I want to remind that the Ukrainian party made such a move after we proposed to test this mechanism in practice” - DPR Plenipotentiary said.
