Occupied Donbas costs Ukraine millions because of free public utilities for this region.

Minister of Finances Natalia Yaresko informed this.

Maintenance of the occupied regions of Donbas costs Ukraine about 3 billion UAH per month – this is about $ 200 million.

According to Ms.Yaresko, Ukraine looses in humanitarian spending and infrastructure. Our country spends about $200 million for subsidies because it delivers free electricity, gas and water for the occupied regions.
