 All pension taxes paid by retirees should be taken into account upon retirement, deputy prime minister says

Vice-Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko says that pension accounting should include all contributions by each person to the Pension Fund, not only those made after 2000.

He said on air of NewsOne TV channel, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"This is my personal and principled stance - this pensionable service should be taken into account. It is currently being counted and I believe that there is no reason to cancel contributions made before 2000," Rozenko said.
