State position concerning Donbas – the occupied territories remain with supply of heat and electricity but lose payment of social benefits

 

Here are milestones of the week by UNIAN correspondent Eugene Magda (continuation, see the previous article for beginning).

Unian correspondent identified the most important events of the previous weeks.

The Central Electoral Commission has finished calculation of votes for party lists, however, there remain some ‘hot points’ in electoral districts. This does not prevent creation of coalition puzzle which consists of experienced parliamentarians and ambitious newcomers.

State position concerning Donbas

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has contributed to the formation of state positions concerning Donbas. He informed about freezing of payment of social benefits for the uncontrolled territories. In addition he said that all budgetary institutions should be withdrawn from the territory of self-proclaimed republics until December 1. The community met the Premier’s initiative enthusiastically, this we cannot say this about promise not to stop supply of electricity and heat to the occupied territories. However, according to Eugene Magda, Yatseniuk’s offers is quite reasonable – in the current situation Ukraine shouldn’t give reasons to be blamed for provocation of humanitarian disaster in southeast of Donbas.

Creation of coalition in process

‘It is interesting what position will the parliamentary coalition take concerning the regulation of Donbas conflict?’, – Magda asks. Negotiators informed that they had agreed on priorities in defense and humanitarian policy and they would not hurry with personnel appointment until the coalition agreement in signed. Volodymyr Hroysman [vice Prime Minister of Ukraine] believes that the fundamental document for the eighth convocation Parliament would be signed until December1. If to put aside the unclear symbolism, there were no arguments why the coalition agreement would be written for so long. E. Magda supposes that the trio of coalitions initiators – ‘Block of Petro Poroshenko’, ‘People’s Front’ and ‘Self-help’ might be precarious of vagaries of radical party led by Lyashko and representatives of ‘Motherland’ party led by Yulia Tymoshenko.
