Leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin told why the former home stadium of FC Shakhtar Donbas Arena in occupied Donetsk does not work "at full capacity". The leader of the separatists told this in an interview with a Russian Internet news outlet. According to him, there are no large-scale events that could be held at the stadium, although there are "ideas that I would not like to talk about in advance". And the "budget of the republic" cannot afford maintaining the stadium. "Well, of course, this is a matter of maintaining the stadium too. This is tens of millions of rubles a month when it operates at full capacity. There are not many enterprises… the "state" resources, based on the budget formation in a given period of time, in order to apply funds toward the Donbas Arena. But this does not mean that we do not have this in our plans. Of course we have, and with the development of the economy, we are going to gradually launch and bring Donbas Arena to full capacity", - Pushilin frankly lied.
