“Our priority in a new parliament will be to facilitate as quickly as possible the condition of ordinary people who have been reduced to complete poverty by the current regime… For example, we will cancel the current anti-national pension reform, while restoring the pre-existing retirement age and pensionable service for women. We will immediately conduct a recalculation of pensions, which will grow on average by Hr 334. We will establish a single pension accrual principle – 65% of the average monthly wage. There will be no special pensions,” he said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
Turchynov also added: “We will urgently increase the minimum wage to Hr 2,400 – the level of the updated living wage. We will propose a bill that that will halve spending on the maintenance of government agencies and cancel benefits to officials.”
He also said that the opposition had drafted a bill that “will create an entirely new tax system in the country.”
