    The responsibility of all branches of Government in Ukraine should win over any interests, first of all political, because on the agenda is the approval of the most essential reforms in the state – those of judiciary and a pension system. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman was quoted as saying in his video address on Facebook.

    "Today a new plenary week kicks off in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. It is rather crucial as on the agenda is the reform process - especially that of the pension system", said Volodymyr Groysman.

    He urged parliamentarians to unite to ensure the adoption of reforms – the way it was during the discussion and adoption of the Law "On Education" that would make it possible to bring about change in the system of education of children and adolescents, as well as to improve their competence.

    “Among the objectives for this week is to complete the judicial reform. The next issue - and we are close to taking the decision - about the new pension system that has been expected for decades. It is fair, and this change would enable the Government to raise pensions to 9 million out of 12 million pensioners. Now is the moment of truth when we can by pressing the green button to support Ukrainian seniors", the Head of Government urged. “I expect that our responsibility transcend political interests. I believe that unity is essential while adopting decisions to make Ukraine stronger."
