One of the active separatists who stood at the origins of Russian occupation Anatoliy Khmelevoy continues to receive pension as a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. This follows from the material "Three years without Motherland: residents of Sloviansk remembered the beginning of the war", published in Moskovskiy Komsomolets Russian newspaper.

The article tells about the fate of collaborators and terrorists from Sloviansk, who were forced to move to the occupied Donetsk after the liberation of the city by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The former Ukrainian deputy from the Communist Party of Ukraine Anatoliy Khmelevoy organized in Makiivka another meeting of the so-called "Sloviansk brotherhood", that is, the militants who fought in Sloviansk in 2014, almost three years after those events.

Participants in the meeting told the Russian propaganda journalist that Khmelevoy continues to receive special pension in Ukraine as a former people's deputy.

"Khmelevoy is respected in the corps of Slavs. "Anatoliy has a large pension as a former deputy of the Ukrainian Supreme Council, so it happens that he will distribute it to the needy, when he himself has nothing to eat. He is uniquely the only person here, who is trusted by everyone!" – the material of MK said.

As previously reported, the former deputy of the Ukrainian Parliament took an active part in initiating a military conflict in the Donbass. Being a local deputy, he facilitated the adoption of the decision to transfer part of the premises in the executive committee building for the needs of the pro-Russian "self-defence" of the city by the session of the City Council on April 30, 2014. At the same time, Anatoliy Khmelevoy headed the so-called Coordinating Council of Sloviansk, which provided all possible support to the Russian occupants and local militants.

Khmelevoy was the People's Deputy of Ukraine from the Communist Party from 1994 to 2002. He held the position of Chairman of the Subcommittee on Water and Road Transport of the Committee on Construction, Transport and Communications in the Parliament.
