The Ukrainian government promises to increase the average salary to 15,000 UAH (565 USD) in 2022. Prime Minister Denys Shmygal said so during the press conference.
According to Shmygal, the government is to approve the document on the Wednesday session.
The draft budget offers an increased minimal salary for doctors in the amount of 740 USD; the salary of mid-level medical staff is supposed to make 500 dollars.
"The average monthly salary in 2022 is to make 555 dollars. That's basically quite a decent level, which means that by the end of the year, the wage will reach the amount of 648 dollars; that is, the salary size will grow in December. And it will let the real salary size increase, too. We also pay a lot of attention to the growth of both nominal and real salaries, the size of real retirement wages and real subsidies", Shmygal said.
