President: Half of funds saved by staff cuts in the regions must be used to increase salaries and pensions

Half of the funds saved from reducing the number of officials in the regions, will be aimed at increasing salaries and pensions, President Viktor Yanukovych said at “Conversation with the Country” teleconference, presidential press office reported. 

President Yanukovych said that he had consultations with regional governors on successful implementation of administrative reform, combating corruption, raising the level of officials’ professionalism, and motivating the officials, who continue working after the staff cuts. 

“We have decided unanimously that any reduction in the local administrations must follow the principle of directing 30% – 50% of the released funds into raising wages for those, who remain. Another 50% must go into the state budget to increase wages and pensions in the public sector,” Viktor Yanukovych said. 

“If we do not raise salaries to officials, if we do not create adequate conditions and incentives for their work, it means that we will push them to corruption. These are quite related issues,” he said.
