But experts think otherwise, warning about the dangerous financial trends in Ukraine.

He reminded that last year the shortfall was $ 160 billion. Thus, the deficit should increase by another 8 billion.

Earlier the representative of the “Reanimation package of reforms” in the pension scheme Galina Tretyakova talked about the upcoming increase in pensions in 2019. The government is going to index payments for the 9 million Ukrainian pensioners.
From 1 January the cost of living has risen to 62 UAH. Such a raise will be given to the holders of minimum pensions. March 1, officials will arrange another indexation, given the level of inflation. It’s half the growth rate of the wage Fund in 2018 and add half of the inflation rate.
The expert said that indexation will take place according to the formula adopted in October 2017, so the increase will not affect all. After all, some pensions exceed this formula. “Therefore, those who have pension more than the formula, even with indexing, will remain present value of the pension.” It is worth noting that in the three years to 2018, the average salary was 3894 hryvnia.
We will remind, the government has recognized the consumer basket of Ukrainians illegal and changing standards.
