'We have to adopt an immediate decision and make amendments to the State Budget in order to increase the financial supply of the State Border Service,' the Head of State said at the NSDC meeting.
'It is inadmissible when different servicemen have different wages, when the AFU servicemen receive UAH 7 thousand and border guards receive UAH 4 thousand,' Petro Poroshenko emphasized - reported by president.gov.ua.
The President noted that border guards served in the ATO area as well. Thus, they defend the state just as the National Guard and the Armed Forces.
The Head of State offered to include the given issue to the final decision of today’s meeting and addressed the Prime Minister and the Chairman of the Parliament with a proposal to ensure money supply aligning.
Respective draft law must be submitted to the Parliament as an urgent one.
'We should solve the issue of border guards in the nearest time,' Petro Poroshenko said.
The President has also stressed the need for the further enhancement of contract service in the Armed Forces. At the same time, the increase of professional differentiation in the determination of financial supply level of servicemen is essential.
'We should create proper motivation and improve skills of servicemen. Except moral stimuli, there should also be efficient material stimuli for the service in the ATO area and on the frontline,' the President added.
