As the Head of our state Alexander Zakharchenko said, enterprises that are on the ground of the Donetsk People’s Republic and which were built by our fathers and grandfathers, belong to the people. If the enterprise not only work for the benefit of the people, but also directly or indirectly pay for the genocide of the people, they should be brought under state control.
We have long endured on our land oligarchs who paid for ‘ATO.’ But this has come to an end. Now all the industrial enterprises of the Donetsk People’s Republic will either pay taxes to our budget, while remaining the property of the former owners, or come under external governance, and then all the profits from their activities will be managed by the state.
This decision was made by the DPR Head, and the People’s Council supported it unanimously and adopted the appropriate amendments to the tax legislation. Also this solution has received mass support of the people of Donetsk People’s Republic. This is evidenced by, for example, a rally at the entrance of Yenakiyevo Metallurgical Plant, closed due to the blockade of Nazi radicals.
I am sure, it is quite feasible to refocus Donbass enterprises to economic rails of the Russian Federation. So once again the neo-Nazi’s blockade and criminal actions of the Kiev authorities and oligarchs turned against them.
