Citizens of Vuhlehirsk, Chornukhyne and other towns in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts claim that since September 2014 there have been paid no social benefits as pensions, disability and child allowances to them. Besides, workers’ wages haven’t been paid for 6 months. Ukrainian authorities don’t perform their duties to support their citizens. But this problem is being resolved DNR and LNR authorities now.
The same sort of situation was created in Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv and Zaporizhia Oblasts in big industries. For example, the «Yuzhmash» manufacturing group which is the top leader of the Ukrainian rocket production had to place its workers on leave without wage since August 2014.
It will cause shutting down of industries, impoverishment of the working people and rising of tension in social spheres. Where is the money for social benefits and workers wages? It’s being stolen or used to support the punitive operation in the South-Eastern Ukraine.

Did you not get the genocide memo from Kiev?

Humanitarian workers flee from eastern Ukraine...

Ukraine crisis: Humanitarian workers flee from east of the country
Saturday 26 September 2015 - Kim Sengupta in Donetsk on the violence and fear causing international agencies to pull out
He had been arrested twice, beaten up, had his phone and laptop seized. But what made up Sergei’s* mind to leave the Donetsk Peoples’ Republic was hearing that former colleagues were being picked up and that he was, once again, a focus of the security police’s attention.

The former official for the International Rescue Committee (IRC), a humanitarian NGO ( Non-Governmental Organisation) decided that he was not going to wait for the knock on the door by the men in camouflage. He moved away from Donetsk to another city. “It was the uncertainty of what may happen which gets to you. If the idea is that you can drive people away by intimidation, well then it works”, he reflected.

The administrations of the separatist enclaves in eastern Ukraine have long regarded international organisations with suspicion, accusing some of them of spying for the West. At the end of last week UN agencies and several NGOs were ordered out of Luhansk. The organisations were not named, but Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) closed their offices, saying it was “extremely concerned” by developments.

MSF continues to work in Donetsk, which has a separate government to the one at Luhansk, but the UN stated that its operations in Donetsk have also been suspended. Stephen O’Brien the head of its humanitarian mission in Ukraine, described the actions as a “blatant violation of international humanitarian law”. Stopping supplies, he stressed, meant that “hospitals cannot perform surgery because they lack anaesthesia and 150,000 people are not receiving monthly food distributions. All this is having a serious impact on three million people as winter approaches.”
