Donetsk, Oct 5 – DAN.  Kiev's inaptitude for meeting public needs will lead to the loss of sovereignty, the Chairman of the People's Council Vladimir Bidyevka said.

Earlier Ukrainian prime minister Denis Shmygal said speaking in the Lvov Polytechnic University that payments of pensions might be abrogated in 15 years.

"The country's economy is falling apart, state debt is growing; corrupted authorities, unbridled  nationalistic terrorism and attempts to escalate the situation don't help the case. Now, top officials claim that Ukraine is incapable of performing its primary social functions; they essentially work up the people for a further complete loss of Ukrainian sovereignty, for the establishment of a Western colony on the remains of the country's territory," Bidyevka said.

He added that Shmygal's statement is rather optimistic as the country would probably run of funds to finance pensions much earlier.

"This is exactly what Maidan made to Ukraine. This was the name of the game of the so-called Dignity Revolution. Were the "American cookies" worth Ukraine's sovereignty, territory, human resources, exploitative credits, stagnation? False values led to false goals."

In the meantime, the DPR plans to raise pensions to the level of the Rostov Region in three steps: from January 1, 2021, then from July 1, 2021 and from January 1, 2022. *ot
