    The average wage in Ukraine under the current conditions should make up at least 10 thousand hryvnias, and this figure is shaped due to the growth of the economy and  deshadowing of economy. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.

    "Average earning under the present circumstances should be increased to UAH 10,000. We give citizens debts. People, who receive minimum wage and salary in envelope are socially unprotected, thus when they retire they receive minimum pension. It is essential to ensure the full legalization of wages", the Head of Government underscored.

    The Prime Minister stressed the wage growth does not lead to uncontrolled price hikes. "The increase of wages did not affect the growth of prices. Our system of deshadowing was designed to eradicate grey economic schemes. We have invested these funds, for example, in educators and in restoration of respect for the Ukrainian teacher", the Prime Minister underlined.
