This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during the Government sitting.
“We are very close to adopting a pension reform. The majority are ready to support this reform. I'm advocating an idea to pass the reform this week,” said the Head of Government, “We have information that certain artificial obstacles hamper the work of the Parliament to prevent adopting a pension reform. Dragging out is a crime against Ukrainian seniors who have been waiting for pension improvement for years. The opportunity (to improve the system) can be provided by us already this Thursday. Hence, I want to call on all the sound forces in the Parliament to do everything necessary for us to consider tomorrow the pension reform in Ukraine. Tomorrow (September 21st) will be the moment of truth, when everyone can demonstrate real respect for citizens. "
