    • Leader of the so-called “DNR” Denis Pushilin stated that he would raise the salaries of teachers and doctors by 26% from January 1, 2020. This was reported by separatist media. According to Pushilin, the “expansion of the economic sector” continues in the “republic”, so he is ready to increase salaries and pensions. According to the so-called “republican employment center”, today the salaries of doctors and teachers are $80-95 maximum. Thus, state employees in the occupied Donbass will (at best) receive $120 per month after raising the salary. Earlier, the leader of the “DNR” forbade “civil servants” to go on vacation without his personal permission.

      Thats still hardly 30% of the salaries in free and democratic Ukraine…………Russki Mir.

  1. As low as 70%? Where are the other 30%, living somewhere that has no TV or Radio or Internet or anything?
