UN standards state that people are below the poverty line if they have less than 5 USD (262 Roubles. 31 Renminbi. 320 INR. 6.25 CAD. 6.50 AUD. 4.60 Euros. 3.25 UK Pounds) per day for food and lodging. Therefore, People’s Deputy Andrei Shipko stated, “The minimum wage should be about 3,750 Grivnya (9,330 Roubles. 1,100 Renminbi. 11,360 INR. 178 USD. 222 CAD. 233 AUD. 164 Euros. 117 UK Pounds) in the Ukraine, using the official forex rate at the National Bank. In Africa, the poverty threshold is 1.25 USD (66 Roubles. 8 Renminbi. 80 INR. 1.50 CAD. 1.65 AUD. 1.15 Euros. 0.80 UK Pounds) per day; in the Ukraine, the cost of living is 1.50 USD (79 Roubles. 9.30 Renminbi. 96 INR. 1.90 CAD. 2 AUD. 1.40 Euros. 1 UK Pounds) per day. Today, the minimum wage in the Ukraine is 1,176 Grivnya (2,930 Roubles. 347 Renminbi. 3,560 INR. 56 USD. 70 CAD. 73 AUD. 52 Euros. 37 UK Pounds)… about 50 USD (2,620 Roubles. 310 Renminbi. 3,190 INR. 62 CAD. 65 AUD. 46 Euros. 33 UK Pounds) a month, which is about 1.50 USD a day. What is the subsistence level? It’s not just food, its public transportation, personal services, utilities, and clothing. However, this subsistence minimum doesn’t take into account health services and education. If we analyse these factors, it is possible to recognise that the majority of Ukrainians are below the threshold of absolute poverty”.
Noted nutritionist Galina Anokhina said, “Poverty doesn’t allow Ukrainians a healthy diet. It means that the people have an unbalanced diet. Mostly, its fats and carbohydrates… Ukrainians eat a lot of bread and potatoes, but don’t eat much animal products. For a long time, the hunger in the population remained hidden… this can harm our adolescents and children. Such a meagre diet will lead to serious irremediable problems. We can’t correct such deficiencies in children up to 14-16 years merely with a change in diet”. Experts concluded that if the government wants to surmount this problem, it should set the “poverty threshold” at 5 USD per day for each family member. In addition, it should reduce the tax on the importation and sale of products from 20 percent to 7 percent, as well as implement a programme to subsidise medical costs.

Here’s the problem… the IMF pigs are demanding “austerity”… therefore, the government will do nothing to correct the situation, as the banksters won’t let them. The people in Kiev are looking at the people in Donetsk and Lugansk and they’re concluding, “They don’t have a lot, but they have more than we do. Their government ain’t perfect, but it does more for them and they don’t pay out-of-pocket for everything. The Peoples Republics want the USSR back… hey, so do I! We lived better than we do now, and we didn’t have any of those oligarch shits thieving from us”. In short, the people in junta-controlled Banderstan have already broken from the junta in their hearts. It’s only a matter of time…
