Despite the economic crisis and political shakes Ukrainian families are steady in their decision to have children, Prime Minister of Ukraine mykola Azarov said at Wednesday session of the Cabinet, ForUm correspondent reports.

"By results of 10 months of this year the birth rate has grown to 11 babies per 1,000 of population. Besides, for the first time over the years of independence the span of life has increased by 1.4 year. Whatever they say about the government, a growth of the birthrate and lifespan says better than all the words about positive expectations concerning the future," Azarov said.

In addition, the Premier reminded that up-to-date perinatal centers will be opened in eight regions of Ukraine in 2012. "Next year, we are planning to open up-to-date perinatal centers in eight regions. Later, such centers will appear all over Ukraine so that professional aid to mothers and newborns with risks of development is timely and generally accessible," Azarov said.
