The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine proposes that by the end of 2020, officials who receive a salary of 10 ‘minimum salaries’ ($1,700) should receive only half. The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal announced this on his Telegram channel.
“At the time of the pandemic and the fight against coronavirus, the Cabinet of Ministers clearly sets priorities. We will support people and business. At the same time, top officials should understand the situation and tighten their belts,” - it was informed.
According to Shmygal, the exception is the workers involved in the fight against Covid-19 and national security and defense measures.
As we reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers has completed the preliminary preparation of amendments to the state budget for 2020, while the new version of the bill saved the costs of infrastructure, culture and education.
“We completed preliminary work on changes to the state budget. It was a difficult process, but this is what difficult times require. Despite everything, the costs of infrastructure, development, culture and education have been saved,” – Shmygal wrote.
