Raising minimum wage to UAH 3,200 will not lead to inflation - Prime Minister

Raising the minimum wage to UAH 3,200 is balanced; it does not require additional emission of money and will not lead to inflation.

This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during the "Hour of Questions to the Government" at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Friday.

The PM stressed that the Government absolutely professionally approached the issue of increasing the minimum wage in the country from UAH 1,600 to 3,200 UAH.

Today, the Government is working to create a fair pension system. From December 1, the minimum pension in Ukraine will be increased, he recalled.

In this context, the Prime Minister urged MPs and politicians not to intimidate the citizens and not to lead them into a state of despair.
