At the beginning of 2015 (summary in December, 2014) official average salary in Ukraine amounted to 4012 UAH. Traditionally, higher salaries fixed in Kyiv, Kyiv region and industrial areas. Central and Western Ukraine get significantly lower salary than the average wage. In the meantime during the previous year there was a semi-effective process to align average salary throughout Ukraine. Thus, in several areas of Western Ukraine average wage increased relatively faster than on the territory of most of the eastern regions.
Map of arrears of salary by region looks very unevenly. In Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts accumulated huge debts through military action caused Russian aggression against Ukraine. There are large arrears in Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Kyiv oblasts too.
