Workers of Chornobyl nuclear power plant gathered for peaceful demonstration near the government building in Kyiv on Wednesday, 112 Ukraine TV channel reported.  

“The staff working at the NPP and those working for the NPP-related enterprises located in the Chornobyl exclusion zone. They ask the government to return their salary supplement for working in the ionizing radiation area. Since early 2016, they never received this money”, the channel's correspondent said.

“It’s an additional payment for working in dangerous area, and it amounts to 1.5 times of the minimum salary. It’s a compensation for hazardous working conditions. And though the respective law was passed, the issue remains on the table”, said Maksym Orlov, head of the trade union committee of the Chornobyl NPP.
