Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced this at a sitting of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"We have had consultations with the President [Petro Poroshenko] and the coalition. We have had hot discussions in the government... We have found a solution to take first steps on evaluation of the labor of citizens. We suggest that the wage should equal UAH 3,200 in the country in 2017," he said.
