Poroshenko orders help for residents of Slovyansk, other towns in east Ukraine

KYIV. July 6 (Interfax) - Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has announced to have issued necessary orders regarding the humanitarian aid for the needy in Slovyansk and other towns.

"In particular, airplanes and motorcades carrying food are heading to Slovyansk. Bread, water, sugar, canned meats should be delivered to the city as early as today. Besides, I have ordered work to begin to repair power and water supplies to ensure normal life in the city," Poroshenko said in his Saturday address to the Ukrainian people.

Pensions, student scholarships and other government payouts should be delivered to Slovyansk and other towns immediately, he said. "Start rebuilding infrastructure. Clean up the schools. On September 1 children must go to renovated classrooms," the president said.

He reaffirmed the state's commitment to help rebuild houses.

It emerged earlier on Saturday that militias from the self-proclaimed Donetsk republic had left Slovyansk; later there were reports about their departure from Kramatorsk.

Germany‘s E.ON is spinning its Russian business off to a "New Company" which will be transferred to the company‘s shareholders, with plans to list it in 2016. Apart from the Russia business, the new company will receive all of E.ON‘s conventional energy assets. E.ON itself will focus on renewable energy and innovation. Johannes Teyssen, E.ON‘s CEO, told Interfax in an interview of the logic behind the decision and its implications for the concern‘s Russian subsidiary OJSC E.ON Russia.

Australian Ambassador to Russia Paul Myler has given an interview to Interfax ahead of the G20 summit in Brisbane in which he speaks about the MH17 crash, the reasons for joining the West‘s sanctions against Russia and explained why Australia expects changes in Russia‘s food policy by March 2015.

The name Arkady Rotenberg has been in the news far more frequently than usual in recent months. The billionaire was hit by the first wave of European Union sanctions against Russia, and has already challenged this decision in court. Recently it was reported that the businessman has sold part of his assets to his eldest son. Arkady Rotenberg spoke in an interview with Interfax about whether there was a link between these two developments, the impact of sanctions on his business, his friendship with President Vladimir Putin and many other topics.
