Roman Lepa: Increase in salaries will allow improving level of social protection of citizens substantially
Republic’s leadership has managed to more than double a minimum amount of pensions over the past five years, which testifies to the fact that the Donetsk People’s Republic continues moving towards its strategic objective – an increase in the welfare of citizens. This was stated by Deputy of the DPR’s People’s Council in an interview to the DPR’s official website.
ʺAs a result of economic growth, budget revenues have increased, which made it possible to increase a salary level in the formal economy, especially in the social sphere.
Increase in salaries for doctors, teachers and other social workers by 26 per cent from January 1, 2020, will allow enhancing the quality of life of Republican citizens and improving their social protection. Also as from January 1, pensions will be increased by 20 per cent. This is the fifth increase in pension payments in the DPR. I would like to note that this event is taking place in the context of ongoing hostilities,ʺ the deputy said.
