The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine intends to restructure the State Sanitary Service and to reduce its staff twice, PM Mykola Azarov declares.

"Now the service numbers 53 thousand officials, who put pressure on entrepreneurs and business. We have decided to reduce this number twofold and to restructure this service," he said at a meeting with representatives of public health organizations in Kyiv.

According to Azarov, this Service was needed when enterprises were in the possession of the state, but now the state has nothing to do with food production, and private enterprises account for quality of their goods themselves. "This is an army which makes work the government does not need," the Premier noted.

According to him, the State Sanitary Service should be engaged only into observance of epidemiologic situation in the country and prevention of epidemics.
