Deputy Arsen Avakov wrote this on his Ukrainian Pravda blog. "Right now my pension is 1,133.33 hryvnias. And that's because I've been working for 39 years as a tram driver. Now make are making it all the same for everyone", she wrote in the letter quoted by the Deputy.

"Soon we will receive the same - someone who worked for 40 years or more, and those who did not work or worked somewhere in warm as a janitor cleaner will all get the same," wrote the pensioner. 11 hryvnia which the government added to her pension she symbolically handed to Azarov.
