This statement was made by Minister of social policy Andrei Reva.
“In March 2019 these households will receive cash in the amount of their grant in February, on average it is about 1.5 thousand UAH. Similar payments they will receive in April (for March) and may (for April) 2019”, – explained the Minister.

As reported, Ukrainians will be deprived of subsidies.
Ukrainians, receiving a salary “in envelopes”, will remain without subsidies due to the government’s campaign to combat illegal employment.
The state fiscal service Eugene Bambiza. According to him, the SFS to combat the shadow economy will intensify collaboration with the Ministry of social policy.
“If we detect informally employed persons will transmit this information to the Ministry of social policy, and they will project this information on subsidies” – said Bambiza.
“If the person who gets subsidies, is officially unemployed, there is a logical question. It receives revenues, it does not show them and illegally receiving subsidies. We will work with Gastrula, the Ministry and the National police,” he said.
