KIEV, February 27, (ITAR-TASS). Parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk said on Thursday, February 27, that the pension reform in Ukraine would not be cancelled.
“The state budget is empty. Therefore issues like cancellation of the pension reform cannot be on the agenda,” he said.
Yatsenyuk stressed the need to ensure the payment of pensions in accordance with current legislation and issued relevant instructions to the Ministry of Social Policy.
According to the pension reform that started in Ukraine on October 1, 2011, the retirement age for women will be raised gradually from 55 to 60 years.
