KIEV, February 28. /TASS/. Increasing salaries and pensions in Ukraine is impossible now due to military actions in the east of the country, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk told a government session on Saturday.
"At the moment, the country does not have resources for this as all resources are spent on defense, security, army, tanks, weapons, on strengthening security, building a border," he said.
The Ukrainian army is "the first priority" for Ukraine, Yatsenyuk said, adding that 5.2% of the GDP is spent on defense.
