The issue of compensation to deputies for cash payments for housing is very controversial and always provokes heated discussions. On the one hand, many deputies do not have their own housing in the capital. On the other hand, most of the people’s deputies are not poor people who declare millions of income and real estate every year.
In particular, the People’s Deputy from our district Olexander Ponomarev earned 19.3 million UAH last year. Also, the deputy’s declaration lists 2 apartments in Berdyansk with an area of 68.5 and 50.3 m2.
But despite the high income, the deputy was not ashamed to receive compensation for housing in the capital. In May, he was paid 19.5 thousand UAH for renting a hotel room in Kyiv.
According to the Slovo i Dilo portal, Ponomarev was among the list of TOP-10 deputies who, despite their million-dollar fortunes, receive compensation for housing.
