This was said by Social Policy Minister of Ukraine Andrii Reva on air of Espresso.TV, Censor.NET reports.
"We need to return to unified rules of pension payments. It's either you pay and receive pension [as you retire - ed.] or you don't pay and don't receive it. The very fact of reaching pension age is not enough to receive pension payments. The pension must be earned. Those who work and pay [pension fund premiums - ed.] have the right to retire and get paid," the minister said.
