The efforts of the Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine, aimed at abolition of the pension reform, are irresponsible and lead to destabilization of the society. Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Social Policy Serhiy Tihipko thus commented the appeal of the Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine to the President that he veto the pension reform law adopted by the Verkhovna Rada, UKRINFORM reported.

"Opposing the holding of the pension reform, trade unions oppose to increases in pensions for the most vulnerable Ukrainians, who can no longer work," the Deputy Prime Minister said. He reminded that trade unions from the very beginning were called to discuss the draft pension reform, and many of their suggestions were included in the law.

Tihipko expressed confidence that the reform of the pension system is not only a tool for increasing pensions, but also a guarantee of economic sovereignty of Ukraine. "Other countries, whose power was slow to reform, were forced to cut wages and pensions, as well as sell off state property to avoid bankruptcy of the state," he said.
