Govt endorses package of pension reform bills
Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers has endorsed a package of pension reform bills.
An Interfax-Ukraine correspondent has reported that the decision was made at a government meeting on Wednesday.
"Approved. Thank you! We are sending it to parliament," Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said.
He said that the bills are balanced and reflect all the parameters presented earlier.
Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko said that not all proposals of the National Reforms Council and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko were taken into account in the bills that the government was considering on June 21, and the discussion can be moved to parliament.
He also said that the bills can be submitted to parliament only after the conclusions of the ministries received.
Social Policy Minister of Ukraine Andriy Reva said that absolutely all of the proposals were taken into account and that they were not important.
