You're reading: Tigipko: Social payments to continue after elections

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Social Policy Minister Sergiy Tigipko has promised that the government will continue improving social standards after the parliamentary elections in Ukraine.

“Preparations for presidential elections will start 9-12 months after
the parliamentary elections. It’s necessary to be completely
politically suicidal to resort to this step [the cancellation of the
social initiatives of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych]. We’ve made
a promise, and we will fulfill our promise,” he said live on the ICTV
Channel late on June 18.

Tigipko said that starting from May 2012, 12.9 million retirees had
received extra payments to their pensions and that the payment of
compensation to the depositors of the former Soviet Sberbank had
started. He said that the government would continue implementing all of
these initiatives after the elections to the Verkhovna Rada.
