“The Memorandum with the IMF for the first time in the 15-year history published on the website of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine. And everyone can see that sensation is not there, during these three weeks no disasters in Ukraine has not happened. There is no mention of raising the retirement age in Ukraine”, — he said.
P. Rozenko noted that still constantly heard talk about the necessity of raising the retirement age.
“You have to understand that the more of these groundless talk, the less chances to make any pension reform in Parliament”, — said Deputy Prime Minister.
P. Rozenko stressed that in the low current duration of life of Ukrainians to raise the retirement age is unacceptable.
“I am categorically opposed to raising the retirement age now at this stage of development of Ukraine. I believe that now with low life expectancy this is unacceptable,” he said.
