Shmygal explained that the bonuses for March for medical staff treating COVID-19 infected could not be paid because local authorities were guided by an outdated document of the Ministry of Social Policy.
According to him, the money was directed to the regions, but local authorities were guided not by this year’s resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, but by a document of the Ministry of Social Policy from 2003. Therefore, despite the availability of funds in the regions, they could not be paid.
The pipe dream of all health care workers did not come true, because of the outdated documents. I hope Shmygal gets paid for his work according to up-to-date documents.
