Within the framework of pursuing the pension reform, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has elaborated the conceptual framework for the bill on the modernization of pensions for the military and handed over the document to the National Security and Defense Council. This was announced by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during A Question Time for the Government at the Verkhovna Rada.
"We have drafted legal framework and system that provides for the update of pensions for over 550 thousand military retirees. We see an opportunity to raise pension by not less than UAH 1.5 thousand. Pensions for the participants of combat operations will be raised even more," stressed Volodymyr Groysman. "We have submitted this ‘framework’ to the NSDC, because all military issues are resolved in accord with the National Security and Defense Council. It represents all law enforcement agencies and this will be a good platform."
The Head of Government announced that the final version of the bill will probably be presented by the President of Ukraine. "Along with this, our proposal is that whenever the law passed, pensions sould be raised in January already," added Volodymyr Groysman.
