President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky talked with miners from Chervonohrad, Lviv region, who have been rallying for two days now under the building of the Presidential Office with a demand to pay off salary arrears. The corresponding video was published by the MP from "Servants of the People" Yuriy Kamelchuk. He represents the 124th constituency where PJSC ‘Nadiya’ mine is located.
"I promise you that we will do everything. Give me a couple of days, please, I’ll deal with Centrenergo right now and figire out why they don’t pay money. Go home to your families, I’ll figure it out," Zelensky responded to the appeal of the chairman of the mine trade union.
Note that the "special mode of operation" of Zelensky expires only tomorrow, reports UNN. Zelensky switched to this regime because of the coronavirus, which was detected in his wife. Zelensky promised to minimize social contacts for 14 days.
Yesterday, on the Facebook page of Chervonograd Miners, it was reported that 100 miners from Chervonograd gathered under the Cabinet, demanding that they be paid their salaries. "People are outraged and say that they will not leave until the government promises to resolve this issue, because 700 workers do not receive honestly earned funds. In total, the state owed the miners over $1,5 million," the statement said.
