The authorities in Russian-occupied Donetsk took over several empty branches of the Ukrainian bank Ochadbank, and renamed it the Donetsk Republic National Bank, where retirees could go to to collect their pensions. It came in rubles, however, since the money came from Russia.

But now the State Security Service of Ukraine said the separatists could not pay in June because of a delay in money transactions.

The Russian-separatist authorities in Donetsk, however, denied that pensions aren’t paid. According to an employee named Katya Rybka, who works for the separatists’ Ministry of Revenues and Taxes, it is absolutely “nonsense” and, according to her, “the elderly are being taken care of well enough.”
