Salary of Diapers

KIEV -- A cash-strapped linen factory in western Ukraine paid its taxes with sheets, towels and diapers, a newspaper reported Friday.

"Out of profit and with no money to pay taxes, the small enterprise in the town of Nadvirna paid its taxes by supplying local hospitals with its own towels, diapers and bed linen," the Den daily said.

It said the payment was the first time hospitals in the area had received new linen for five years.
