President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is dissatisfied with the pace of bringing wages out of the shadow in the country.
Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman says no more than three months are needed for the new government to eradicate shadow schemes and graft at the Ukrainian customs.
The president is confident that the law of Ukraine on amendments to certain laws of Ukraine in the sphere of public procurement regarding bringing them in conformity with international standards and taking measures to overcome corruption is a new powerful weapon against corruption.
The level of the shadow economy in Ukraine increased by seven percentage points in 2014 in comparison with 2013 - up to 42% of the GDP, a record since 2007.
The Cabinet will introduce additional responsibility for payment of wages in envelopes and illegal circulation of cash.
In 2012 the state budget did not receive more than 4 billion hryvnia due to the reduction of legal import of petrol and the schemes for tax evasion in the market of motor gasoline.
