Our common objective of the Government and the Parliament this plenary week is to adopt the necessary decisions, establish a fair system and abandon the dependence of pensioners on political decisions. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman wrote in Facebook.
"Another plenary week has commenced and the country expects this week a decision on a major pension reform be made. This means an increase in pensions for about 9 million retirees this year. This means an automatic annual recalculation of pensions in compliance with inflation rate and wage growth. This is an opportunity to raise superannuation in the future, due to the elimination of the Pension Fund's deficit," the Head of Government noted.
He urged MPs to endorse vital decisions. "For my part, I appeal to members of the Parliament to trigger the process of improvement of pension benefits for our seniors already in October. Our joint responsibility with Parliament this week is to establish a fair system and put an end to the dependence of pensioners on political decisions," the Prime Minister accentuated.
