Self-proclaimed republic says no funds to pay coalminers' wage debt in Luhansk region
Self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic leaders claim there is no money to pay delayed wages to coalminers of state-run Donbasantratsyt enterprise in the town of Krasny Luch in Luhansk region, according to presidential administration speaker for ATO issues Oleksandr Motuzianyk.
Donbasantratsyt was seized by Russian-backed militants in 2014.
"The enterprise employs 4,000 people, and all of them will be dismissed now. This has once again confirmed that the militants are unable to do anything but steal and loot in occupied territories," Motuzianyk said, according to Ukrainian online newspaper Ukrainska Pravda.
