Russia reduces financial support for the so-called “DPR” and “LPR” during past four months. This was reported by the Deputy Minister on temporarily occupied territories George Tuka on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“About four months ago, Russia started to decrease financial support for these quasi-organizations, and it is not anymore being concealed neither by the occupant, nor by the representatives of these organizations. That means that efforts to economically exhaust Russia are working,” he said.
Russia’s investments in Crimea have also decreased, Tuka added.
