The results of the group on economical issues (July 31)

In the working group on economical issues, Republics’ representatives guided by the interests and well-being of citizens, continue to focus on artificially delaying Ukraine's fulfillment of its financial obligations to residents of the Republics on social payments, as well as to employees of the SE “Water of Donbass”, and SE “Donetsk Railway”.

“By today's meeting, the Ukrainian party sent a long-promised information about the financial activities of the SE “Water of Donbass”, which was to serve as a starting point for further joint elaboration of mechanisms for the effective company’s management. However, the information provided is not sufficient for such work, in particular, for the experts meeting of the parties. Ukrainian negotiators quite formally reacted to the necessary actions for resolving the accumulated problems, but, once again, promised to work out our comments and detail the data before the meeting of experts” – DPR Plenipotentiary said.

We hope that the active position of Republics and mediators of Russia and the OSCE will allow to intensify the work of the profile group on the agenda issues – for this there are already enough developments in all areas, and it is high time to agree on for practical implementation.
