 In terms of the economical group, participants of the Contact Group considered the main agenda items, among which special attention was paid to problems in the work of CE “Water of Donbass Company”, Ukraine’s debt on social obligations and repayment of wage arrears.
“Unfortunately, we still have not heard from the Ukrainian side the specifics or even the estimated dates when it is planned to form the final amount of the debt to the employees of the Donetsk Railway.
In this context, we warned Kiev’s representatives that no unilateral actions in this process will lead to transparency in the payment of arrears to employees. In addition, the number of such workers voiced by the Ukrainian delegates is critically small compared to our data, according to which Ukraine must pay to 24 thousand employees.
That is why it is necessary to conclude an agreement and do all archival work in order to later say that the Ukrainian side has really begun to fulfill its social obligations to people” - DPR Plenipotentiary said.
Natalia Nikonorova also drew attention to the need to continue work on finding ways to resolve the issue of electricity debt of the Ukrainian telecom operator Vodafon.
