This is reported by the Donetsk News Agency.
As News Front reported earlier, starting from January 1, 2020, the Donetsk Donetsk Regional Council increased pension payments by 20 percent. Thus, the minimum amount of pension in the country today is 4.8 thousand rubles. In Ukraine, this figure is 1.6 thousand hryvnias [about 4.2 thousand rubles].

The Republic is becoming more and more attractive for foreign investors”, – commented the situation the head of the faction “Donetsk Republic” in the People’s Council of the DPR Valery Skorokhodov.Residents of Australia have protested the fires
