 List of jobs giving right for early retirement to be expanded, - PM Hroisman


The pension reform proposed by the government provides for the expansion of the list of occupations that give the right to early retirement.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman said on air of ICTV.

"We have unhealthy occupations, for example, miners or steelworkers, who cannot spend 25 years at the forge: conditions and health effects there are completely different. So, there are lists #1 and #2. They were somewhat reduced last year, but now this reform gives us the opportunity not only to leave these lists unchanged, but to expand them," he said.
