On November 16, in the village of Dmytrivka, Berdyansk district, it is planned to close the branch of “Oschadbank”, which serves residents of four villages, which is about 7,000 citizens. In this department, people receive pensions, rent for land, and also pay bills for electricity and other utility services. One employee of the department serves daily from 40 to 80 people. Now she faces dismissal.
The news of the closure of the only bank branch for four villages (Dmytrivka, Troyany, Andrivka and Shevchenko) caused outrage among local residents. They requested assistance from Mykola Leshchuk, a deputy of the Berdyansk district council from the OPPOSITION BLOC.
The deputy has already prepared a draft appeal to the Cabinet of Ministers and the central office of “Oschadbank”, which will be submitted for approval on the next session of the district council.
“This department is located in a common building, it has one employee, among the costs there is only payment for electricity. It cannot be unprofitable. We will demand from the government not to close this bank branch, because it is very important for people. They already saythat if their demands are not heard, they are ready to block the route of regional importance “Zaporizhia-Berdyansk”. We must do everything possible to prevent such a confrontation,” Mykola Leschuk stressed.
