The process of improving pension payments in Ukraine is carried out in automatic mode without manipulation and solely basing on legislative norms and budget capacity, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced.
He reminded that last year, as a result of the pension system reform in Ukraine, seniority payments had upped for more than 9 million seniors. In April this year pensions to military retirees were improved as well. Starting July 1, pensions are automatically raised for people with low incomes.
"It's important that assigning improved pensions is taking place automatically avoiding manipulation", said Volodymyr Groysman. "We will direct budget resource, in particular to settle social issues".
In this regard, the Head of Government reminded that the Government's initiatives on economy de-shadowing, including the "Ukraine without smuggling" initiative, foster filling the budget.
