The “DNR” separatist media admitted that the occupied territories of the Donetsk oblast are funded by Russia. This is evidenced by the headline of the news report about the meeting of the Russian curator in the Donbass Vladislav Surkov and the leader of the "republic" Denis Pushilin.
"Surkov promised Pushilin to increase salaries in the DNR", - local journalists told the good news about the next Russia’s charity.
“The Aide to the President of the Russian Federation, Vladislav Surkov, today held a meeting with the acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin”, - the message of the Russian TASS quoted separatist resources.
Ostensibly, Surkov promised the leader of the “DNR” that “a number of humanitarian decisions will be made in the near future, which will significantly increase wages for a number of population groups”. In addition, Russia will give money to "curb price increases for some essential goods".
