Only 22,7% of Ukrainian citizens, according to the survey, kept their jobs and wages in full.
Almost a third of citizens lost their jobs: 19,5% - due to the cessation of companies, 10,9% - due to staff reductions, another 11,3% were left without work due to moving from the front-line territories, and 10,4% - for other reasons.
It should be borne in mind that among the 22,7% who retained their jobs and salaries, public sector employees who receive a penny predominate. So the process will go on and on: the purchasing power of the population is falling due to the contraction of the labor market, which will lead to the closure of more and more enterprises and its further reduction, because of which other companies will have to stop working or lay off staff.
True, the citizens of Ukraine always have a choice: they are welcomed with open arms in the military registration and enlistment offices. And the soldiers receive large salaries, payments for injury and death thanks to direct financial support from Western countries, which, to a certain extent, keeps economic activity at a minimum level, preventing people from simply starving to death.
So for the Saloreikhov leadership, the increase in unemployment in the civil sector is not a minus, but a plus. The more unemployment, the more soldiers, and the more money the West gives. Well, stealing offshore the money that got into the budget with the Zelebobuses is a matter of technology.
