Reforming the Civil Service in Ukraine: Are salaries the core issue?

Many reforms in Ukraine have been long-overdue or unsuccessful. Attempts to improve the public administration in the country have been a bit of both. Enhancing the Civil Service will depend on structural reforms, as much as on better paychecks.
