At the government meeting on March 11, Ukraine's ministers refused from their prizes before the end of the year. Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal stated this at a briefing broadcasted on 112 Ukraine TV channel.
The issue of prizes will be considered based on the results of work for the year and the decision on allocation will be made public for the discussion.
"The key question that was expected was a political decision, but it is important - the ministers refused from their prizes until the end of the year and decided that the issue of ministerial prizes in political posts will be considered based on the results of work for the year, and then we will be together, in public discussions we will decide whether ministers and politicians deserve a bonus," Shmygal noted.
The salary, the maximum amount of which cannot be higher than five averages in Ukraine remains. The allowances determined by law also remain, and the premia for the overwork can not exceed 30%.
As we reported before, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal and Head of IMF mission Ron van Rooden discussed the prospects of implementing a new loan program for Ukraine during a telephone conversation.
