LPR Head: Kiev-introduced blockade encouraged decision on external management
By introducing economic and transport blockade of Donbass Kiev has encouraged the decision to put Ukrainian companies in Donbass under receivership, said LPR Head Igor Plotnitskiy.
Despite Kiev launching the so-called “anti-terrorist operation” (ATO) and Donbass economic blockade, a number of Ukraine-registered companies continue to operate in the Republics without paying taxes to LPR and DPR budgets. LPR law on taxation provides that all non-resident companies who failed to register with LPR tax authorities before March 1, are to be put under receivership (external administration).
"The blockade speeded up the process. It was the time to act decisively. "
"People perfectly understand that working for a Ukrainian enterprise they retired according to our law – at 55 years old. And if something happened, some injury, they received injuty compensation here," he explained.
"There was a bizarre situation – people work for a Ukrainian enterprise, but receive pensions and other payments from LPR. Everyone realized it cannot go on for a long time, that there was to be an end."
"We said and guaranteed that employees (of the Ukrainian companies) will keep salaries and jobs," Plotnitskiy said.
