In the Russian-occupied Crimea, the level of wages in the budget sphere is extremely low.

A corresponding statement was made by the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the State Corporation - Fund for Assistance to Housing and Communal Services Reform Sergei Stepashin in Simferopol at a meeting on demolition of emergency dwelling and overhaul repair of common property of apartment buildings in the Crimea.

According to him, the salary of 8-12 thousand rubles is one of the lowest in Russia, which annexed the peninsula.

The official further noted that the Crimea has one of the lowest amounts of collected contributions for capital repairs of the property of apartment buildings among those recorded in Russia.

Earlier, the Russian Federation recognized Simferopol as one of the most polluted cities. The city was on the 70th place in the "Environmental rating of Russian cities-2017", which was prepared by experts of the All-Russian People's Front jointly with the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia.

However, not only low salaries and polluted ecology became a scourge of the modern Crimea, which is under the occupation of the Russian Federation.

Puppet authorities traditionally can not establish a normal supply of electricity to the peninsula. For example, November 21, thousands of Crimeans left without power because of the intensified storm wind.
