The salaries of the Naftogaz management should have been long reviewed. The high salaries and bonuses of the leadership of this state-owned company, to put it mildly, do not correspond to the reality in which the warring country lives and to the incomes of the majority of the population of Ukraine.
MP Viktoriia Voitsitska from the Samopomich Union faction notes, “If we say that these people are working for the sake of Ukraine’s independence and security, then let’s be honest – the guys who protect our security at the front receive 0.001% of the salaries received by the management of “Naftogaz.” Then the question arises – is this right? Where is justice?”
The parliamentarian notes, “If we look at world experience, then we will see that in state-owned companies, such as Naftogaz, people receive not market salaries, but smaller ones, because they choose to follow their vocation, to serve people. They decide that they are ready to receive less and at the same time work in the interest of the state and in the interest of the people. We have a fundamentally distorted principle of justice and at the same time, we have the audacity to argue that these people defend the independence of Ukraine. I will repeat myself, but aren’t the guys at the front actually the ones defending our independence?”
