President Petro Poroshenko announced the decision to raise the monetary support for the servicemen on the frontline.

“I made a decision and instruct the minister to raise the level of monetary support for those fighters who are on the frontline. Starting from the first of April, I order to increase the additional payment on the first line by 2000 UAH. The minimum additional payment should be 12 thousand hryvnias for each soldier,” the Head of State informed.

At the same time, he stressed that the additional payment on the second line must be increased by 1 thousand hryvnias and its level must be brought to 5500 UAH.

“We have to confirm that this is my first priority,” Petro Poroshenko added.

The President also emphasized the importance of providing monetary support for the Ukrainian military seamen defending the Azov coast. “We must provide the additional payment similar to that of the soldiers on the first line for the sailors during combat operations at sea,” Petro Poroshenko noted.

During the conversation with the military, the President emphasized that the state was doing everything to modernize the Ukrainian army from secure communication to modern drones, other means and weapons.
