Oleh Bereziuk: Raising MPs’ salaries is a provocation to distract people from the real work

Today, people’s deputies of Ukraine receive a salary that allows living and working as a parliamentarian: to travel over Ukraine, to meet with people, to work with assistants. This is outlined by the chairman of the Samopomich Union faction, Oleh Bereziuk.

The lawmaker believes that adoption of the regulation on increasing the salaries of people’s deputies is a shameful provocation aimed at discrediting the parliament and diverting attention from the really important issues: occupation of Donbas and the Crimea, the Normandy meetings, the budget for the next year and so on.

“Samopomich did not vote for this regulation. This is a bone tossed at us, this humiliates both the parliamentarians and people. Because when an MP receives a huge salary, while a teacher or a nurse gets 2-3 thousand hryvnias – this is ridiculous, irrational, just impossible,” says Oleh Bereziuk.
