KYIV, June 15 – Social Policy Minister Maryna Lazebna said that the real cost of subsistence level in Ukraine increased from UAH 4,200 to UAH 4,300.
"Revising approaches to determining the real cost of subsistence level is a requirement of the time. We should finally tell people what the real cost of subsistence level is. As today it is actually the level of survival, not living. Sometimes you are filled with wonder looking at what set of products and goods it includes, and how it can be tied to measuring a person's good living standard. Therefore, first of all, it is necessary to change approaches and the scope of its application," Lazebna told Interfax-Ukraine.
