The government intends to adopt a separate decision on improvement of pensions. Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko told IMC at the beginning on Wednesday. Yulia Tymoshenko reminded that the increase of pensions by 13% since July 1 had been envisaged by a draft law on making changes and amendments to the State Budget of Ukraine for 2008 the endorsement of which had been undermined by the United Centre party.
“If the UC party had voted, the country would have been with the budget and today every ministry would have had an opportunity to strengthen its policy, making it more directed to practical satisfying the needs of people,” the Premier is assured.
Yulia Tymoshenko feels hesitant concerning a possibility of gathering deputies earlier than September at a special parliament session with an aim to adopt the Budget, though she doesn’t exclude such a chance. According to her, respective consultations are being held by all the political forces, represented in the Parliament. At the same time she informed about an intention of the Government to consider an issue of possibility to increase the pensions as a top-priority one. “Today the topmost issue will be all possibilities and measures targeting not to leave the pensioners without the pension increase,” Yulia Tymoshenko urged.
