President Petro Poroshenko said that the Pension Fund (PF) received 5 billion hryvnia, which will contribute not only to directly fill the budget of the Pension Fund, but also to indexation of pensions. This was stated by the head of state at a meeting with representatives of the government on the basis of the act on the preferential customs clearance system, the so-called "Eurobags" (cars with European numbers).
"This is important for me, as well as for the president … As it is about filling out the pension fund. Already 5 billion hryvnia received by the Pension Fund"- he quotes the head of the state of his press service.
