Yatseniuk not to raise retirement age and cut scholarships

The Ukrainian government is currently not planning to raise the retirement age.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk said this during a government meeting on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“At this stage the government does not propose raising the retirement age. As for the special categories of pensioners, at this stage the government does not propose any review of approaches to calculating pensions for special categories,” Yatseniuk said.
According to him, the current system of pensions for working retirees is preserved.
In addition, Yatseniuk said that scholarships would continue to be paid.
Meanwhile, the prime minister expressed hope that the reform package proposed to the parliament would allow Ukraine to receive additional budget revenues and cover the current “enormous social expenditures.”
