Ukrainian presidential candidate, non-faction Deputy Petr Poroshenko has said he was ready to pay 1000 hryvnyas (about 84 dollars) per day to volunteers involved in punitive operations in the South-East of the country, Avistarnews reports.

"I've promised to tell you at every meeting that I would hold that we would provide for the army. This will be our priority. There will be no conscripts, who participate in battles, in the army. There will be volunteers. He will get a thousand hryvnyas per day. His life and health will be insured for one million hryvnias," Poroshenko said, adding that after this proposal volunteers will immediately show up.

At the moment, the salary of a Ukrainian serviceman is 600 hryvnyas per month.

A "day of silence" is declared in Ukraine today. Any propaganda is prohibited ahead of the presidential elections scheduled for May 25.
