"If we count at the rate of one to two, it turns out that most of the offered salaries in ORDLO [certain (occupied) areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions] do not even reach the Ukrainian minimum wage.

If earlier Ternopil region steadily set records in terms of official people's income, now the leader is "liberated" Donbas," the journalist said.
