UPD: 10/16/2014 "DNR" weekdays: pensions and salaries - "not our competence". A PHOTO
By order of the “Chairman of the Council of Ministers” of the DPR, the head of the administration of Donetsk is appointed, who will also serve as the mayor of the city.
This is reported by blogger StivyG. “Igor Yurievich Martynov (to KDPV) was appointed the“ head of the city ”; before being appointed to such a responsible post, he headed the city park of culture and recreation. According to Martynov, among his top-priority tasks are the preparation of the city for the winter and the restoration of the destroyed houses. To the question - how payments of pensions, benefits, salaries will be decided - he said that this is not the responsibility of the self-proclaimed republic.
"This is not our competence, but we will not stand on the sidelines and will also participate in obliging Kiev to give people what they own," he says. Martynov also said that the young "republic" is counting on UN assistance.
That somehow happens. The “young republic” does not have money for retirement, salaries and benefits, you see, they will “commit Kiev” to pay pensions and salaries. Whom he will oblige to transfer millions of subventions to housing and utilities, without which utilities will not work - the "mayor" did not specify. Each new "people's governor" and "people's mayor" in the Donbas is more gifted than the previous one. Earlier, the terrorists of the “DPR” have appointed their mayor of Donetsk: Lukyanchenko does not answer calls.
