Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych expects the government to hold the pension reform efficiently, president's envoy to the Verkhovna Rada Yuriy Miroshnychenko has said. "The president hopes that the pension reform in the short term will solve the problem of filling the Pension Fund, and generally raise the level of pensions," Miroshnychenko said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine on Tuesday.

According to him, the pension reform should be focused primarily on the fair distribution of pensions.

"For the president, it is important to promote reforms which in the first place will raise the living standards of citizens, especially of the poor," the envoy said.

On Tuesday the Verkhovna Rada put on its agenda the bill on pension reform, prepared by the Cabinet.
