Ukraine's Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has declared over $1 million in cash, with an annual salary of $3,000, according to the electronic declaration, which was announced on the site of the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption on Friday.

KIEV (Sputnik) — The prime minister declared cash assets of 2.4 million hryvnia ($94,000), 460,000 euros ($504,000) and $870,000 in cash. Groysman's wife declared 1.6 million hryvnia and $372,000 in cash.

Groysman's salary for last year amounted to just over 77 thousand hryvnia ($3,000).

The electronic declaration also listed four plots of land, the total area of which amounts to ​​over 9,000 square meters, two houses and two apartments.

The launch of the online system declaring the assets of Ukrainian officials is one of International Monetary Fund's (IMF) conditions for its continued cooperation with Kiev. The system was supposed to have been launched on August 15, but the State Special Communication Service of Ukraine refused its certification, and it was launched in full from September 1. Government officials are required to file a declaration before the end of October.

Ukraine heavily relies on foreign aid to support its economy and to pay debts amid the ongoing armed conflict with independence supporters in the country's southeast.
