The Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko said that enough funds were allocated in the state budget for preferential passage for vulnerable groups of the population. According to the Minister, there is a need to reform the system of social benefits due to the fact that today the offsets between the state and organizations providing the services are based on continuous corruption schemes and inefficient use of public money.
From 1 July 2015 the citizens will be provided with the government subsidies based on their income. The benefits to judges, prosecutors and other so-called VIP-beneficiaries are cancelled and the inefficient incentives are eliminated.
Pavlo Rozenko, the Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine, predicts a tough discussion in the Parliament during the debate on the pension system reform. He stated this during a conference call of the Pension Fund of Ukraine.
Accumulative pension system is planned to be introduced on 1st January 2017. This was stated by Pavlo Rozenko, the Minister of Social Policy, who also requests to submit the relevant bills to the Parliament.
