As previously reported, MP from Servant of the People Yevhen Brahar proposed a non-standard solution to the problem of debt of Ukrainians for utilities in February 2020. Instead of a comprehensive solution to the problem, he suggested citizens with pets to sell them and "calmly pay the utilities". The deputy's proposal provoked a negative reaction among the Ukrainians, and a flash mob "Bro is not for sale" was launched on social networks.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky instructed the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to deal with the situation of a woman whom Brahar proposed to sell a dog to solve the problem of debt for the utilities. The government stated that the woman should pay $11-13 per month, since she receives a subsidy.
