Press Secretary of the President of Ukraine Svyatoslav Tsigalko refuted the statement of the leader of the opposition party “Fatherland” Yulia Tymoshenko declared during a speech in Parliament on the government’s decision on the salary increase retroactively for the Prime Minister, the President and members of the Cabinet of Ministers.

“Forced to react to the lies disseminated by Yulia Tymoshenko regarding the salary of the President. Obviously, this is done to divert attention from their own “poor” returns. I note that the salary of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, starting in 2014, shall be transferred for charitable purposes,” – said Tsegolko in the post, published on his page in Facebook.

According to the decree of the Ukrainian government on 20 April this year, the size of the official salary of the President of the country is 28 thousand UAH (69.4 thousand USD), other components of wages (bonuses, premiums) is not installed and no changes are expected soon, said the press Secretary of the head of state.

In the afternoon of 1 November, the Deputy of the faction “Bloc Poroshenko” Viktor Pynzenyk proposed to demand from the Ukrainian government to cancel the July decrees on increasing the salaries of members of the Cabinet, writes “Ukrainian truth”.

“When we heard the government of this decision, we heard: this decision is overdue. I fully agree with this position, but the time was three months ago to raise the salaries of Ministers in 2.5? What has changed in three months? I invite the Parliament to appeal to the government and recommend to cancel the July salary increase to Ministers and other senior officials. When the country is difficult, the government first needs to set an example of willingness to make sacrifices,” said Pynzenyk.

Shortly before the speech of the Deputy leader of the Batkivshchyna party Yulia Tymoshenko said that the government retroactively from 1 may, have raised his wages in 2-2,5 times. After the call Pynzenyk she supported his initiative. “The faction “Fatherland” will certainly vote to include this resolution on the abolition of increasing… Groisman, all Ministers of 2.5 times salary”, – said Tymoshenko.

“But at the same time, they did it retroactively. They adopted a resolution on July 27, 100 thousand hryvnia per month wages, and brought her into action on 1 may. And we therefore demand that not only was the requirement to Cabinet of Ministers to repeal it, but also to recover illegally paid money retroactively. Because this is a flagrant violation of the law. And we ask to put it on a roll-call vote,” – added Tymoshenko.

On the eve was published the Declaration of the President of Ukraine, according to which Poroshenko owns not only more than a hundred commercial companies, land plots, apartments and cars, but also a collection of art objects. So, the President declared 65 paintings of the XIX and XX centuries, 15 paintings of the “old masters” and the four paintings of the expressionists, as well as six sculptures, a Grand piano, chandeliers and three fireplaces set, women’s bags, English and Belgian furniture and other art objects.
