    The core task for the country and the Government in 2017 is to propose a new pension system that will ensure fairness, the increase in pensions and reduction of the Pension Fund deficit. This was started by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman on air of the Inter television channel on Friday.

    “I will offer to the Ukrainian citizens the new pension system basing on three objective things. The first one is fairness”, underlined the Head of the Government speaking about the topmost goals for 2017.

    According to him, today the pension system is unfair: ”Regardless of whether a person is working or not, as the result he/she gets the same minimum pension. I find it extremely perverse in a way, stressed the Prime Minister.

    Moreover, the new pension system is aimed to provide grounds for increasing a real pension for Ukrainian citizens and to reduce the deficit of the Pension Fund by 2024 completely.

    In 2017 it is a main challenge for the country. Ukrainian society aspires further changes in the pension system, summed up Volodymyr Groysman.
