 "There's no money:" Crimean state employees to face wage cuts, - Krym.Realii

Some public institutions in Russian-occupied Crimea warn their employees about impending reduction in salaries by an average of 10 percent.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Krym.Realii, one of public employees in Simferopol told reporters that the leadership had already warned its subordinates they would be paid 10 percent less in May than in April.

"They told us there was a lack of funds in the budget, so they were going to cut salaries. Before, we used to go to work on holidays and got extra pays for that, and now they try not to engage us because of the economy," the employee said on condition of anonymity.

No one can say for how long the situation will prevail.

"A leave season is approaching, it is important for everyone to get their vacation pays in due time and in full. And we don't know what will follow," the source noted.

Russian-controlled authorities in Crimea give no official comments about this situation.

Earlier, it was reported that the personnel of the Crimean-based Russian Black Sea Fleet had got their wages cut by 40 percent, because when Crimea was under Ukraine's control, they received overseas extras.

In addition, according to the Crimean media, in late May, employees of state companies in Kerch left their jobs and went to the leadership with a demand to pay salary for two months. At the same time, people can not get dismissed.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine officially declared Feb. 20, 2014 the beginning of the temporary occupation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia. On Oct. 7, 2015, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a relevant law. International organizations have recognized the occupation and annexation of Crimea illegal and condemned Russia's actions. The West has imposed a series of economic sanctions. Russia denies the occupation of the peninsula and calls it a "restoration of historical justice."
