Ukraine: Kyiv's Mayor Gives Up His Paycheck

Scott W. Clark of Foreign Notes writes about Kyiv's new controversial mayor and his populist move to give up “his mayor’s paycheck for it to be used to buy apartments for Kiev citizens who don’t have them”: “That’s a nice gesture though it will probably not amount to much given the rise in apartment prices here in the past couple of years. I don’t think the mayor gets paid all that much relatively speaking so it will be a drop in the bucket.”
