Donetsk, Apr 22 - DAN. Donetsk People’s Republic Head Denis Pushilin had a meeting in Donetsk on Monday with DPR deputy prime minister Vladimir Pashkov who was appointed to this post on April 18.

“It is necessary to pay special attention to the relaunching of idling companies,” Pushilin told Pashkov. “We lack concrete proposals. We also have to analyse the operation of the companies which do not work at full capacity.”

Pushilin and Pashkov discussed improvement of infrastructure at the crossing points on the contact line, road repairs and procurement of equipment, buses and ambulances for public utility companies. The deputy premier was tasked with drawing proposals to optimise legislation in the agricultural sector.

“I believe it is necessary to introduce new technology to work out and implement the decisions targeting the population’s needs and better standard of living. We need a level playing field,” Pushilin said.

“Thank you for having confidence in me,” Pashkov said.

Vladimir Pashkov was appointed DPR deputy prime minister by Pushilin’s degree on April 18. *jk
