    Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman urges the private sector to introduce new standards of payment wages as soon as possible and to provide wages for employees not less than the minimum size amounting UAH 3,200. The Head of the Government said in his opening statement the session of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

    "It is very important that the private sector have an understanding of this issue and introduce new schemes as soon as possible", stressed Volodymyr Groysman, commenting on the Government decision to double the minimum wage.

    He noted that there were two months left before entry into force of this resolution.

    "Everyone must understand: none will earn a salary under UAH 3,200 in Ukraine. UAH 3,200 plus – OK, but it is important to account for the minimum wage", he stressed.
