"The State Border Guard Service has received funding for payment of decent salaries to personnel. As the President of Ukraine promised on May 28, from now a contract serviceman will receive at least UAH 7,000 [$280], while junior officers will get about UAH 9,500," Slobodyan wrote on Facebook.

According to him, it is a good prospect for the patriotic youth to continue serving as border guards.
