Video: Donetsk seeks to form 'National Bank' - Press TV INfocus


A parliament member in the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk says the parliament is planning to form a National Bank in order to facilitate tax payments.

"The biggest challenge at the moment is to form a National Bank, because without a National Bank, it is very hard to redirect taxes and payments," says Alexander Yevenievich, the minister of transport in the People's Republic of Donetsk.

"I think the winner will be the side that wins the economic war... the most effective way to win is to stop sending money to Kiev," says Yevenievich, adding that "If Kiev stops receiving money from us, it will fall apart."

The two mainly Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Lugansk in Ukraine have been the scene of deadly clashes between pro-Russia protesters and the Ukrainian army since mid-April. The violence intensified after the two regions declared independence from Ukraine on May 12 following local referendums, in which the residents voted overwhelmingly in favor of independence from Ukraine.
