Attempts of the Ukrainian side to recover From the inhabitants proclaimed Luhansk national Republic to pay for water are the height of cynicism under blockade by Kiev of payments And payments in the Donbass, said Commissioner Plenipotentiary LNR Vladislav Danego on the meeting of Department of social support of the population of the South-East of Ukraine in the Federation Council of Russia.
"It was an absolute surprise that the Ukrainian side in the Normandy format (Germany, France, Russia, Ukraine) in Berlin will try to raise the issue in relation to European partners helped to collect From the residents of Lugansk people's Republic to pay for water that they receive. Yes, this water comes From the territory controlled by Kiev, But at this level raise the question of recovery of fees despite the fact that these people Ukraine has stopped all the payments Since July 2014, ? the height of cynicism ", - the news Agency the words of Dane at a meeting of the Department of social support of the population of the South-East of Ukraine in the Federation Council of Russia.
Dana has shown that the question of payment for water is considered in the economic subgroup of the Contact group on settling the situation in Ukraine." But when the question began to be resolved, began to emerge additional problems ? said the Plenipotentiary representative LNR.? And in that moment, Petro Poroshenko in Berlin informs that he fundamentally needed the money And asked to assist in this regard Germany And France ". He said that Kiev still hasn't resumed work of the banking system For payment of pensions And utility payments." Unfortunately, this Problem is not solved, Ukraine fundamentally deviates to solve it, And at this point the height of cynicism ? to recover payment for water " ? drew the attention of the Dane.

On September 26 at the LC introduced a state of emergency because of termination of the water supply of Kiev. The supply of water controlled by the Kyiv Petrovsky water intake And ZFS-2 was completed at the end of September. On 12 September it was announced that the flow of water From Lisichansk And Petrovsky water intakes to the site of the Luhansk national Republic is limited to 50%.
