Ex-Minister of social policy Pavel Rozenko on 13 January reported that, according to him, salaries of Ukrainian top officials raised three and a half to five times, and the salary of people’s deputies – two and a half times, to more than 100 thousand UAH per month. Comment on this information, the speaker of Parliament Dmitry Razumkov noted that the salaries of MPs increased by 3 thousand UAH in connection with “living wage”.
Users of social networks did not leave this information without attention. “GORDON” have compiled the most interesting comments.
“Adequate salaries to MPs and civil servants should be”, said a private entrepreneur, business consultant, blogger Yuri Bogdanov.
“Officials have to pay a decent wage. The amount can be discussed, but the announced figures are not outstanding for Kiev. High salary and the attention of anti-corruption bodies can give a good result. Although if someone wants to steal millions, no increase is not enough. Among the defenders of high salaries and bonuses of officials continues to sound argument: “a High salary is a safeguard against corruption.” Guard against corruption independent law enforcement agencies,” – said the journalist Roman Tsymbalyuk.
“Our society needs to wean itself from Soviet egalitarianism and get used to the fact that highly qualified specialists receive high salaries for their work. No matter, the Deputy Minister or a Minister, or a Deputy head of the state-owned company, but if he’s professional and shows you the result, then there is nothing terrible in the fact that his salary at the level of the top Manager in the private sector. For knowledge, experience, quality and results have to pay,” said the former people’s Deputy Borislav Birch.
Birch added: “From the fourth floor of the President’s Office received information that Zelensky was angry because of the high salaries of Ministers, Deputy Ministers and heads of state enterprises. They say that it is bad for his rating. Interesting logic. The presence of a rapist Ivinisova, who became the MP from the “public Servants”, in the session hall wasn’t annoying. And not angry that Bogdan Yaremenko ordered prostitutes, sitting at the session of Parliament, and then he wrote about all the media in the world, but he remains head of the foreign policy Committee. And it, apparently, does not upset the fact that the Deputy from fraction “the servant of the people” Evgeny Shevchenko, going to broadcast the propaganda of the Russian first channel, said Kremlin puppet and the separable head of the Donetsk Pushilin: “We’re on the same side.” Not that Angers the President, Oh, not that.”
“People don’t like the high salaries of officials and deputies. But the truth is this: or high salaries from the state, or envelopes. There is no third,” wrote investment banker Sergey Fursa.
“Among the defenders of high salaries and bonuses of officials continues to sound argument: “a High salary is a safeguard against corruption.” Guard against corruption independent law enforcement agencies,” – said the journalist of the program “Schemes” Michael weaver.
Weaver added, “when they said that changes need to start with ourselves, no one thought that they will start with wages.”
“The Minister of culture youth and sports Vladimir Borodyansky said that professionals in the civil service should pay more than commercial companies. “I believe that public service should be honorable work, where we must attract the best professionals from the market of Ukraine”, – he said.
“In connection with increase of salaries to MPs, Metropolitan, confused abolished the taboo,” joked blogger Victor Litovchenko.
