KIEV, May 16. /TASS/. Employees of the new patrol service that will start operating in Kiev in June will get from 8,000 to 10,000 hryvnias ($400-500) in salary, Ukraine’s Deputy Interior Minister Eka Zguladze said on Saturday.
"We offer them 8,000-10,000 hryvnias. We started from 6,000, but then decided to raise the salary because of inflation," Zguladze told Ukraine’s 5 Channel.
Average salary in Ukraine stands at 3,863 hryvnias (around $190) as of March 2015.
Recruiting for new patrol service was announced in January. Zguladze said that around 2,000 people have been employed by the service.
Patrols will act as traffic police, monitor public order and provide first aid. Setting up the news service is currently the largest project of Ukraine’s Interior Ministry.
Patrols will be introduced in Odessa and other cities after Kiev.
