Russia’s standby charges in Donbas

By our estimates, the approximate sum is USD 6 billion, annually. Half of the sum covers the financial needs, to support these territories financially, while the other half covers the military needs of Russia in this region.  

Demands of pro-Kremlin militants to donate money from Ukraine’s state budget

We don’t have any extra resources, and Ukrainians shouldn’t donate their own money to feed those in Donbas. Everything comes at a price. If they have enough money to manage the several-thousand-strong army, they will surely find some to manage the water supply systems. My point is we should not donate to the occupied territories. Cease fire, put down weapons, withdraw the Russian troops, restore the Ukrainian authority there, and then we can talk about donations. Yes, living and surviving there is tough, there are many problems there; but that’s not our fault, it is Russia that occupied part of our country.
