As reported by Censor.NET citing Hromadske.TV, this was said by Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine Andrii Reva at an extraordinary meeting of the government.
"Due to our decision, a teacher will get wage under the 10th wage category. Not the 6th, or the 7th, or the 8th, as it was before, but the 10th. If it amounted to 3,385 hryvnia (about $130) in 2016, the minimum wage of a teacher with the lowest occupational qualification will be 5,266 hryvnia (about $202) from Jan. 1, 2017. This is the reality. And we do not need to start printing money in order to do this. The real economy can provide the necessary funds," he said.
