    The new session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, which starts tomorrow, September 5, can become a groundbreaking step towards the country's systemic changes and fundamental reforms. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in his televised address.

    «Results are already apparent. First and foremost these are economic stabilization and economic development. We are introducing decentralization, launching large-scale road construction, reviving the industry. But that's not enough to really succeed. Hence, it is precisely at this parliamentary session, we are capable to take initial steps forward in order to build to a successful country», the Prime Minister emphasized.

    Volodymyr Groysman stressed his readiness to prove the correctness of the chosen path. «I understand that there will be those forces who will make efforts to stop us, and even worse to seduce us out of the right way. No one will have a chance to destabilize the situation in the country. We have to demonstrate consolidated efforts, jointly with the President and the Parliament, in order to adopt important decisions that will ultimately change the country», he underlined.

    The Prime Minister recalled that a package of drastic reforms that requires 226 votes of lawmakers is on the agenda. Among them - pension, medical and educational reforms.

    «226 votes of MPs will offer an opportunity to increase retirement payments to 9 million senior citizens. This decision has been waited for decades. We must put into a practice a far-reaching educational reform. We need to retrofit the health care system and to approve a number of important bills that will have an impact on business development. What do we need today? The responsibility of each political force and every lawmaker will enable this session be successful and gives the opportunity to continue the transformations, thereby people will feel these changes. I would like Ukraine to be a country of successful people. We have to put our differences aside and serve for the greater good of the country and citizens», underscored Volodymyr Groysman.
