Ukrainian Facebook users couldn't help but notice the bottle of designer Voss mineral water being enjoyed by their president, which cost the equivalent of a third of the Ukrainian state pension.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has found himself in hot water with users of social networks, who have taken notice of the president's taste for the finer things in life, including bottles of luxury Voss mineral water.

"My attention was caught by the bottles of mineral water on the table next to Poroshenko," explained Oleg Ponomarov, who posted the pictures on Facebook on Saturday, since which they have been shared by almost 2,300 users.

"I was trying hard for a long time to remember the brand, but I knew for sure that I had seen it in Denmark. Then I remembered! It is the elite Norwegian Voss, which was designed by Calvin Klein himself, and so pure it's almost poured out by virgins."

"What can I say? War in Ukraine? Crisis, you say? The Ukrainian pensions raised by Yatsenyuk from September 1, can stretch to three of these bottles. Make your own conclusion," wrote Ponomarov, who reminded readers that a bottle of Voss sells for 329 Ukrainian Hryvnia [$15.51].

On September 1, the Ukrainian basic state pension was raised to 1,074 Hryvnia [$51], which would just about stretch to three bottles of Poroshenko's mineral water; the minimum wage for Ukrainians was raised to 1,378 Hryvnia [$65], enough for four bottles of Voss.
