After the Parliament adopts the government’s bill on the pension reform the Government pledges by the end of year to increase and modernize pensions to military pensioners. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysma on air of "1+1" TV channel.
"We have a special group of retired military personnel. I had a number of meetings with them and they are asking a right question: why those who retired later have higher pension payments than those who retired earlier, but all of them were military personnel. The next step - I guarantee that by the end of the year we will resolve this issue after the approval of this law (draft law of Ukraine "On amendments to some laws of Ukraine on the improvement of pensions"), I mean improvement and upgrading of pensions to military pensioners", said Volodymyr Groysman.
