The highest salaries in Ukraine in 2017 were recorded in Kyiv, acting Head of the State Employment Service Valeriy Yaroshenko has said. 

"The situation in the labor market in Ukraine was tense in 2017. Along with the problems of legalization of the labor market, of course, migration processes also influenced the labor market of Ukraine. A huge problem of labor migration is the low level of wages in many sectors," Yaroshenko said.

According to him, the highest wages in Ukraine in 2017 were recorded in Kyiv. He also noted that the average salary in Zakarpattia region had increased significantly.

"We have a completely different level of wages in the regions. The highest salary was recorded in Kyiv - UAH 11,643, followed by Kyiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, and Poltava regions. Odesa and Mykolaiv regions are followed by Zakarpattia region - UAH 6,700," he said at a press conference at Ukrinform on Wednesday. 

Yaroshenko added that large migration processes and outflow of labor were taking place in Zakarpattia region, therefore "the level of wages in Zakarpattia region began to grow because of the employers' desire to retain skilled employees."

He noted that the lowest wages in 2017 were received by nurses, doctors, teachers, and kindergarteners.

"Today the lowest wages are obtained by nurses, doctors, teachers, and kindergarteners. This is UAH 3,700, according to the State Statistics Service," he added.
