As it has been known, Ukraine made and the government of Ukraine promises that life level of Ukrainians will be the same as in the EU. They announce that it will happen soon, that Ukraine will go out for the membership of the EU. And no one recollects that Ukraine has already signed agreement concerning association with the EU. And it is used to think that the Maidan was arranged as a result of delay of signing this document by criminal government Viktor Yanukovich.
Average salary in Bulgaria is 330 euros; it is the lowest salary among EU countries. The salary in Rumania is a little bit higher, it is 370 Euros. However, an average salary in Moldavia that wants being in the EU is 180 euros. Average salary in Ukraine is even lower, it is about 150 dollars.
There is no such a low level of salary even among countries of NIS (New Independent States).
It was always supposed that salary in Tadzhikistan and Kirgizia is the lowest among countries of NIS. But, Ukraine has now lower salary than in Tadzhikistan.
The Maidan caused such state of economy of Ukraine, where they demanded to sign the agreement concerning association with the EU. They hoped that this agreement is not more than common inter-country agreement.
