Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman said on the proposal of the deputies to raise the minimum wage to 5,000 hryvnia.
Such a proposal put forward to the Prime Minister, MPs from the Radical party of Oleg Lyashko.
“The radical party has just introduced a bill to increase salaries from October 2017 to 5 thousand hryvnia,” — said on Tuesday in Parliament MP Viktor halasyuk.
However, the head of the government reacted very strongly to such a proposal, calling it populist rhetoric.
I promised that there will be 3 thousand 200 hryvnias the minimum wage, I have fulfilled my promise. 5000 is unrealistic figure, which is now impossible. It’s just populist rhetoric, the Prime Minister said during a meeting with urban, rural and village heads at the meeting of the Board of the Association of Ukrainian cities.
Recall from 1 January 2017, the minimum salary of Ukrainians increased by half — from 1600 to 3200 hryvnia.
