According to the Committee of Voters of Ukraine, 67 millionaires from the ” Servant of the People ” rent housing for budget funds.

CVU reports about it on the website following results of the analysis of declarations of people’s deputies who receive budgetary compensation for rent of housing or rent of hotel number.

“Out of 147 people’s deputies who rent housing for budget funds, 81 deputies have more than one million hryvnias in their accounts. Most of the millionaire deputies are representatives of the Servant of the People faction (67 people),” the statement said. Much fewer deputies from other political forces. 

Among the richest deputies from the SN, who receive budget funds for rent:

  • Oleg Voronko, declared UAH 129 million;
  • Ostap Shipashlo, 22.5 million;
  • Alexander Trukhin, 20.9 million;
  • Stepan Chernyavsky, 11.5 million;
  • Pavlo Pavlish, 10.8 million

“According to the Committee of Voters, the Verkhovna Rada should abandon the practice of paying funds for people’s deputies to rent housing. The vast majority of deputies who receive such funds could pay rent for themselves. The size of the People’s Deputy’s salary allows you to pay rent in Kiev without the help of taxpayers’ funds, “said CVU Chairman Oleksiy Koshel.
