15:35, 28 April 2016


Chief Department of Intelligence of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry expects that Vladislav Surkov, Counselor to Russian President Putin, will come to Donetsk region to participate in May festivities.    

“On April 30, we expect that about 17 million US dollars will be assigned for social needs of locals in the so-called DPR. However, leaders of the militants will only spend about 2 million dollars for the needs of local residents; the rest of the sum will go to cover the needs of Russian and local officials. That’s why Surkov is expected to come to Donetsk – to allot the money”, reads the message.

According to Ukraine’s Security Service, in February this year, Surkov already visited Donetsk. Back then, Putin’s aide and local militant leaders discussed preparations to local elections.
