As can be seen from the city councils provided information, the lion’s share of the income of the mayors of the cities is not so much salary, how many different kinds of bonuses and premiums. In the Ukraine, as it turned out, the leaders of small cities and regional centers do not earn less than their colleagues from the capital and the centers of the areas. These salaries are commensurate with the income of people’s deputies, several times exceeding the minimum salary of the average Ukrainian. However, the question remains: is there enough rewarded the work that the mayors did not even think about some corrupt fraud of which we regularly read in the local media.

Note: All amounts are published without specifying the number of cents to them. Thus, some published material, the payouts may vary in the range from 1 to 99 cents.
