General Staff: Salary of military in ATO zone – minimum UAH 4,500

The minimum wage of the military in the ATO area is UAH 4,500.
Representative of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Mykhailo Sherbyna told a round table on modernization of the Ukrainian Army at Ukrinform.
“Real wages of an ordinary soldier – without seniority and without premium is 4,500, this is the minimum,” Sherbyna said.
At the same time, he explained that this amount is not received at the beginning, because “the premium is paid for the previous month of service, and in the first month only the salary is paid, allowances are paid in the second month and in the third month [soldiers] receive fully all cash collateral.”
The General Staff representative said that the number of calls to the “hotline” on social protection in the Defense Ministry has reduced in recent years. “Most of the issues are practically decided and the prosecutor’s office is very helpful,” Shcherbyna said.
He also said that the soldiers from the ATO zone after demobilization have a preferential right to remain to serve further in their military unit, to make the military career or to stay reservist.
