The President instructed the government to develop a regulation on the number of recruits and the budget of the recruiting campaign in August. By the way, this year the call for per person cost budget 3293 hryvnia. 3200 of them – a one-time cash assistance to recruit (in the amount of two living wages) and 93 of the hryvnia – the money for the preparation and conduct of the appeal without regard to food and transport costs.
It should be noted that last year financial assistance to the conscripts were issued in the amount of two minimum wages (currently it is 6400 UAH), however, after the decision to raise the minimal salary instead of two minimum wages decided to give two of the subsistence minimum.
