Prihvatizatsii – euromaintenance or “porokhomor” in the Ukrainian economy

Prihvatizatsii – euromaintenance or “porokhomor” in the Ukrainian economy

The third day went as parties do not declare, after Moore raised the noise around this topic.
October 3, 2018 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine published a promising and intriguing order No. 756-R “About zatverdzhennya minds the sale of majestic shares publeo AKTSIONERNOGO tovaristva “Centrenergo” competition first vakreste proponowane prices for the principle of the auction.”
The story of the suffering of the Ukrainian privatization did not know of similar examples of greed and bespredelschiny! However, as we see Ukrainian ” Euro-reformers “are able to make an indelible impression even on” seasoned ” scams and crooks.
It is hard to believe, but from the moment of publication of the above-mentioned resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine the Ukrainian public, business and economic elite had an opportunity to observe the fact of “unprecedented generosity” of the Ukrainian government to close to it in spirit and, perhaps, for some other reasons, potential investors of public joint stock company “Tsentrenergo”.
Particular attention is drawn to the third paragraph of this resolution, according to which the Ukrainian government undertakes to repay all debts of the above-mentioned JSC, which took place before the date of transfer of ownership to the buyer of the state block of shares, which is 78.289% of the authorized capital of this JSC.
According to the published resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, the state property Fund undertakes to repay the investor any losses or expenses (more precisely to pay any amount of additional taxes and fees, including penalties and penalties , as well as other fines that are accrued to the company by a court decision, which came into force after the date of transfer of ownership of the shares of JSC “Tsentrenergo” to its buyer).
The essence of the sensation associated with the seizure of JSC “Centrenergo” is that for 27 years of independent Ukraine for the first time in its history, the state undertook to pay the buyer all the debts that were formed in this enterprise before the transfer to its new owner. And, in fact, for the entire period of its existence.
It is possible that the amount of compensation to the new owner bude even higher than the cost of the enterprise.
There is an impression that in Ukraine there are investors with phenomenal abilities, with the possibility of hypnotic action on the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. And it seems that these people are owners of one of the companies – buyers under the name of OOO “Ukrdorinvest”, which, according to the people’s Deputy Evgeniy murayev is associated with the closest aide to Poroshenko, Igor Kononenko, and Fund balance assets the firm oversees the Deputy Chairman of Fund Vladimir Derzhavin -also a close friend Kononenko. By a strange concurrence of “circumstances”, Mr. V. Derivin is a close friend of the head of Supervisory Council of JSC “Centrenergo” Alexander Vizir.
Truly, ways of the Ukrainian corrupt officials are inscrutable! There is a question to the Ukrainian law enforcement agencies and the Ukrainian anti-corruption bodies created with “fatherly” support of the USA: NABU, SAP, SAS of Ukraine. Ukrainian society is following with deep concern the end of the era of post-euromaidan privatization. Before Ukraine, as never acute is the sacramental question: to be or not to be? after such a privatization.

Medical reform of Ukraine-chaos and ghosts. 800 hospitals have been closed in Ukraine!

Medical reform of Ukraine-chaos and ghosts. 800 hospitals have been closed in Ukraine!

The attempt of the leadership of Ukraine to reduce budget expenditures is carried out by reducing the financing of the most important social sphere – health

Outright cynicism of the current government is an attempt to deprive the citizens of Ukraine of the constitutional right to public professional and free medical care.

All this happens under the guise of various verbal manipulations. I. e., to the people unscrupulously hollow thoughts that the present power really wants to modernize and improve the health care system existing in Ukraine.

This deception of Ukrainian citizens by the Kiev authorities is carried out through verbal manipulation, i.e., when people are shamelessly lying, allegedly, about the construction of new modern hospitals; promises to give everyone the opportunity to be treated with the most qualified honey.experts; talk about some kind of medical insurance; talk about giving some obscure package primary on a free basis; talk about family doctors; crazy theses that, allegedly, money will “go” for the patient and many other things that has the purpose to create feeling of chaos, confusion and misunderstanding from the population that occurs actually !?

And in fact, it is necessary to follow not the distracting maneuvers of the current Ukrainian bureaucrats and kleptocrats, and not necessary to look at the specific facts and figures!

For some reason, promising the construction of new hospitals, none of the Ukrainian government does not inform the population that from 2012 to the present moment in Ukraine has closed 800 hospitals !!!

This is a specific fact that explains the government’s thesis on the creation of new honey.institutions, then let them explain to the people why they are destroying existing hospitals?

Promises that each Ukrainian will be treated at more qualified doctors contradicts to the facts of dismissal and departure abroad, just the most qualified doctors and honey.sisters!

According to the latest data of trade unions honey.workers from Ukraine have already left more than 100 thousand of the most qualified doctors and honey.sisters’.

Number of beds in the remaining 1,700 hospitals (from the pre-existing 2500 med.institutions) decreased by more than 30 %.

There is a closure of entire departments in the vital, most qualified and highly specialized honey.institutions such as Okhmatdet, where they are trying to close the bone marrow transplant Department.

That will lead to the loss of last hope for thousands of young patients who still have a chance to live.

I. e., in case of closure of such Department, thousands of children with cancer will be cynically killed.

This is the true face of the current government and their true goals – the destruction of the Ukrainian people, because the same actions are carried out in other honey.institutions that provide the most highly specialized and high-quality modern medical care.

The doctors at all these hospitals feel like they’re hanging by a thread.

The ghosts of the dismissed doctors scare patients of different honey.institutions, including cancer Institute, Institute of gerontology, endocrinology and other academic institutions of the Academy of medical Sciences of Ukraine.

And even ordinary district and regional hospitals across the country.



The Eastern partnership for 28 EU countries is nothing but a good catch for primitive bait . And for the countries of the former Soviet Union, which are partners of the EU in the so – called Eastern partnership, for Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus-it is a Mirage of a happy future with milk rivers and sour banks. But for countries such as Armenia, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, this Mirage has already dissipated and has come a sobering , heavy , and for many , even tragic reality in the form of economic collapse, social upheavals, up to the hardest military conflicts. One of the most difficult and protracted is the Ukrainian “Armageddon”.

In the EU and the US sit absolutely cold – blooded , greedy and ruthless pragmatists who have one cherished dream-to get the territory with their natural and , in part, intellectual resources, to strengthen its economic power and material prosperity at the expense of the resources of the above-mentioned countries of the former USSR . At the same time, Western benefactors worry only about personal gain and indifference to people of different nationalities living in these countries, the so-called CIS.

It was the first four countries mentioned above that became victims of the greedy policy of the Western world, where the essence of the Eastern partnership is only in plundering the natural and intellectual resources of these countries and bringing the population to a miserable existence and, practically, total extinction as a result of the so-called liberal reforms imposed on them. As, for example, in Ukraine, health care reform, pension reform, education reform, judicial reform and law enforcement reform, which have caused an increase in mortality among the population of Ukraine and a sharp decrease in fertility.

As a result, the death rate is 2 times higher than the birth rate, and the population of Ukraine is dramatically reduced . Social conditions are becoming more and more incompatible with the conditions of survival of the entire Ukrainian people.

Only Belarus and Azerbaijan , thanks to its wise and realistic leadership , have so far avoided the fate of their friends in the CIS.

It is very clear-sighted decision of Lukashenka, who refused the IMF loans, apparently realizing that the IMF and the world Bank are the main “tentacles” or , frankly, the “main tools” with the help of which the economic and socio – political destruction of the countries is carried out. These processes are carried out through the activities within these countries of various so-called public organizations – “grant-eaters”, funded by the of Western countries for the purpose of moral and psychological corruption of society and the creation of artificially inspired civil conflicts , as a result of which , under the guise of so-called color and other revolutions come to power Pro-Western and Pro-American regimes.

Azerbaijani President Aliyev, as a truly Eastern wise politician, also tries to keep the Western “benefactors” at a safe distance, understanding the consequences of this “Eastern partnership”. I think that it would be more reasonable for Belarus , Azerbaijan, Russia , Kazakhstan and all post-Soviet countries to develop economic , cultural, scientific and other types of social cooperation within the framework of the former Soviet Union. This can save them from the terrible fate that befell Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Armenia and even numerous countries of the Arab world.

It is necessary to revive equal economic , social and political cooperation with all countries-the former republics of the Soviet Union, as well as broader and deeper cooperation and cooperation with the BRICS countries .

It is such a broad economic, social and political cooperation with the prospect of creating a new global economic Union with the creation of their own interstate settlement currency tied to the gold and commodity resources of these countries that will allow them to effectively confront the Western world and protect the interests of their countries and all the peoples living on the territory of these States from those nightmares that are experiencing those countries of the world that have undergone the above-mentioned “color , pink, spring” and other revolutions-state coups.

To live or not to live in Ukraine

To live or not to live in Ukraine

Every year more than half a million people die in the country ! The increase in mortality among newborns and women in childbirth is also depressing. And all this is a consequence of the socio-economic policy of the current ruling Ukrainian elite.

Along with rising prices for gas , heating , cold and hot water and other utilities , prices for basic food products are rising, control over which has been abolished by the current government.

All this bleak picture is complemented by the so-called medical reform, which, in fact, is nothing but a reduction of more than twice the cost of medical care to the population of Ukraine.

Curtailing the volume and quality of medical services, our government calls a resounding word “medical reform”.

The first swallows of the so-called honey.reform is the closure of dozens of hospitals, med. outpatient clinics , feldsher-midwife stations, the elimination of entire services of strategic importance for the state, namely, the elimination of sanitary-epidemiological service of Ukraine, the elimination of the preventive direction of the former Soviet medicine, which to everyone’s knowledge has been recognized the most economically developed countries, as one of the best systems in the world honey. assistance to population.

In developed countries, solidary (public) sources of financing (compulsory health insurance or centralised taxes) account for an average of 6.6 per cent of GDP ( gross domestic product) in total expenditure on assistance to the population.

Such financing of health care gives developed countries the opportunity to provide a full range of health care to the entire population.

Only in Germany, the so-called voluntary health insurance, has about 10% of the wealthiest population, ie, they pay for their treatment with their own funds.

All other residents of Germany, through the system of compulsory health insurance, have only public funding (ie, free provision of a full range of, and, both in stationary, and at out-patient treatment).

Only in the US , Turkey and Mexico guaranteed state honey.aid is not universal. In these countries, guaranteed honey.aid is not available in the US, respectively, 16% of people in Turkey – 30%, in Mexico – 50%.

To date , the Ukrainian state unilaterally, without asking the consent of its people , blatantly violating constitutional rights, deprives the entire population of free and full medical care.

It is not only a shame, it is a genocide of the Ukrainian people. The time will come and these actions of state officials will be considered as a gross violation of the basic law of Ukraine – the Constitution. For that all the guilty will suffer the most severe punishment.

The last message to the current government

The last message to the current government

On the streets of our cities and villages , I have not yet met a single person who would not care about the fratricidal war in the East of Ukraine, who would not complain about the unbearable life in the current reality, when food prices are rising by leaps and bounds, prices for utilities: gas, electricity, water (both cold and hot), heating, garbage disposal, the cost of meeting ordinary, basic human needs have become a luxury.

The question sometimes costs an edge: either to buy products for survival, or to pay utilities.

This problem is becoming an overwhelming burden for the vast majority of our people. That is why , debts for utilities are growing like a snowball.

And not only in the capital, but throughout the country.

Meager pensions, in 1647 – 1700 hryvnias don’t leave to elderly people chance of survival.

The real purchasing power of Ukrainian pensioners for the years after the “revolutionary” shocks fell by more than 2 times.

At the same time, the state has deprived all citizens of Ukraine, of which 80% live below the poverty line (according to the UN), even the most basic, free medical care.

Dozens of hospitals are being closed across the country and medical personnel are being dismissed.

Doctors and nurses are leaving for Poland and other Western countries in the hope of finding a way for their families to survive.

From Ukraine, according to the medical trade unions, has left about 100 of thousands of workers – skilled doctors and nurses. In hospitals already there is a personnel hunger .

The wave of robbery, banditry, raiding swept the entire territory of our country.

Random people who do not have enough education and experience hired by the police are not able to resist the terrible wave of crime.

The crime rate is less than 10 %, and only 2% of these 10% go to court.

The police from the body, which, according to the Constitution, must protect the interests of the people, has become a tool with which the government is trying to counter the Ukrainian people, outraged by unprecedented, cynical actions through corrupt Ukrainian authorities.

The security service of Ukraine, instead of protecting the state interests of the country, has become a body for the suppression of opposition political parties, public organizations, as well as individual politicians, journalists and public figures.

Law enforcement comes to the insanity, when the Ukrainians are forbidden to use the words “party of war”, “civil war in the East of Ukraine”, etc. statements that are commonly heard from the lips of residents of Ukrainian towns and villages .

Such actions of the authorities are nothing but political terror!

It is cynical anti-Ukrainian, anti-people dictatorship which, in anticipation of the end falls to frankly illegal, anti-constitutional, so criminal actions!

Attempts to intimidate the Ukrainian public with the help of law enforcement agencies, the SBU, the interior Ministry, the Prosecutor’s office and other law enforcement agencies are crimes that are not only signs of abuse of power and official position, abuse of authority, but , in fact, there is betrayal, treason!

Such crimes are punishable by the laws of Ukraine and belong to the category of the most serious crimes for which capital punishment is provided!!!

Instead of saving the sinking Ukrainian economy, the current Supreme Ukrainian establishment is mired in corruption.

Plunder of the state goes in almost open cynical form and in especially large sizes.

Which is also a criminal offense, for which the most severe punishment is provided !

Instead of ending the fratricidal war in Eastern Ukraine, the authorities are using this tragedy of the entire Ukrainian people for personal enrichment.

Evidence of such crimes regularly appears in the media.

Not only the highest statesmen of Ukraine, but also their accomplices from the Verkhovna Rada – members of the Deputy corps are involved in them.

In all likelihood, the Ukrainian elite relies on the loyalty of the current justice system, which was created by the current President on the principle of personal loyalty and favor.

But we should not forget that the people brought the current government to such a heavy material and neuropsychic stress, from which even the system of “corrupt Ukrainian justice”can not protect!

Irresponsibility, thoughtlessness and greed of the Ukrainian leadership have reached such proportions that it is obvious that there is a threat of direct people’s lynching!

I ask all people’s deputies of Ukraine, members of the Government and the President of Ukraine to immediately stop rocking the boat in which the entire Ukrainian people with the so-called “our” people’s power!

Ukraine is on the threshold of another Maidan, which may be the last for our state.

With a sense of deep concern, academician Peshko.



Massive outbreaks of measles, the spread of tetanus, anthrax, tuberculosis, leptospirosis and other serious diseases, which Ukraine has forgotten over the years of Soviet power, were the result of the critical state of the health system in the country. This opinion was expressed in an interview with korr. TASS Ukrainian academician, candidate of medical Sciences, doctor of economic Sciences Anatoly Peshko.
“According to the Ministry of health of Ukraine, in most regions of the country recorded massive outbreaks of measles – more than eight thousand cases of children and adults, – said Peshko. – This is an epidemiological threshold and the situation can be called an epidemic.” However, according to the academician, measles is not the most terrible disease that spreads in Ukraine. “We began to have diseases that we forgot about during the Soviet era: anthrax, tuberculosis, leptospirosis and others. This is due to the fact that there is no proper work on the prevention of particularly dangerous infections and vaccination against polio, measles, pertussis, diphtheria, tetanus,” he explained.
Not enough vaccines
“Vaccination, in turn, is not carried out due to the fact that there is not enough of the vaccines themselves, – says Peshko. Ukraine doesn’t have enough means for its purchases, and some countries provide vaccines as humanitarian aid, – he told. – So, from Hungary, came to eight thousand doses. They singled them out not only because they understand the difficult situation, but also because they understand the number of our citizens coming to work for them and who are potential distributors of dangerous infection.”
Peshko noted that the aggravation of the situation with vaccination of the population occurred also in connection with the termination by Ukraine of purchases of medicines in Russia. “Our government for political reasons broke off relations with Russia, from which we purchased a lot of different vaccines and medicines, and today our people suffer from the lack of high – quality Russian-made drugs, which are often much better than both Ukrainian and Indian and European”, – he said.
Epidemic of lawlessness
“The situation with measles is a private manifestation of the attitude of the current government to health care, to the citizens of Ukraine,” the Ukrainian academician is convinced. – We have an epidemic not only of measles, we have an epidemic, first of all, lawlessness, corruption and fraud.”
He believes that this “chaos” can only be stopped by a change of power, and started a widely publicized reform of the health problem with the incidence does not change for the better. ” No medical reform in Ukraine does not pass, there was just a substitution of concepts: free medicine was replaced by a fee, that is, the budget of Ukraine on health care shifted to the shoulders of ordinary citizens of Ukraine”, – says Peshko.
In particular, he gave an example, the Ministry of health eliminated the Office of sanitary and epidemiological medicine, which was responsible for carrying out preventive work against the spread of particularly dangerous infections. “The program” Cheap medicines”, which is designed to provide access to medicines for people who are forced to take them for life, also does not work, ” the academician said. Thus,” it is impossible to consider the problem of measles in isolation from all the others, ” Peshko concluded.
Medical reform
The new law on medical reform in Ukraine came into force on January 30. One of the main points of the document is the division of medical services into two types: free and paid.
Now, in accordance with the law, Ukrainians will be provided with a state guaranteed package of a certain amount of medical services and medicines, which the state undertakes to pay at pre-established rates. The tariffs themselves will be approved by the government of Ukraine annually. However, the guaranteed package is planned to include only the most common cases of visits to the doctor, namely rescue or emergency care to the patient, primary medical care, palliative care. All other services will be paid.
In this case, the funds are supposed to be allocated not to hospitals, but to a specific patient. But, on average, per person, depending on age, according to available data, will account for only 210 hryvnia per year (about $ 8). According to the authors of the law, the innovations will allow more effective fight against corruption, stop funding empty hospitals, and doctors will be able to open a clinic and conduct their practice. According to the law, state financial guarantees will be implemented from 2018 to 2020.
The authorities also announced that they are preparing to create a National health service of Ukraine, which will dispose of public funds intended to cover the costs of insurance of citizens within the state guaranteed package of medical care. It is planned that by July the service will be created and will begin work. According to Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, the true results of the reform in Ukraine will be felt only in a few years.
But many are sounding the alarm today. In the Verkhovna Rada deputies from the” Opposition bloc ” openly call it a fraud, genocide of the Ukrainian people and a violation of the Constitution, as free medicine is guaranteed by the Basic law of the country.

Medical reform

Medical reform

Accepted by the Supreme Council of Ukraine Medical reform under pressure of Prime Minister V. Groysman and his Minister of Health U. Suprun and signing by the President of Ukraine are system of total destruction of the Ukrainian people that can be safely put on the one side with the Holodomor by 1932-1933. This       «Medikomor» of 2018 provides three main tasks:

To remove from the state the obligation about provide free and qualified assistance to all people of Ukraine that in a rude way violates the Constitution of Ukraine and shifts the costs of protecting the lives and health of people on the shoulders of the poor population in our country . Thus, our taxes, which we paid to the state budget, are used by state officials of higher and middle rank in their personal corruption schemes.For this purpose, according to the medical “reform” the constitution is created by the organ , a certain public council for medicine, which, at its own discretion, without any outside control and skilled management, will distribute the entire medical budget at its “great-power” discretion  which confirms the corrupt nature of this organ , which is not controlled by the medical community, or the employees of the Ministry of Health for the laundering of public health expenditures in Ukraine.

The load, which is provided for one family doctor in the amount of 2 thousand people per year, shows that the family doctor will be able to give each of his patients no more than half an hour of time throughout the year. Even the most stupid “maydown” understands that if the doctor physically has only 30 minutes of time for examination, examination, diagnosis and treatment of the above-mentioned diseases, plus the registration of paper or even electronic documentation of any effective and real help, and the pain of what the patient’s cure from any disease can not be said. Thus, everyone understands that the invented Suprun load of the family doctor is utopian, to be more precise – idiotic. For half an hour is not enough not only for all of the above actions that need to be performed by a doctor, but this time is not enough even for documentation and history collection, and not to mention the examination ,diagnosis and treatment of the patient. Slogans about the family doctor are the same fake as slogans about the European standard of living which according to promises of our present statesmen already had to come to Ukraine. But we see that we are even further from Europe than we were in 2013 before the coup d’état in the country!

Financing of the health care system on the principle of Suprun, will inevitably lead to the elimination of almost the entire system of academic degrees(we see that today the institutes in the med Academy System. Sciences of Ukraine work for 2 days a week, such as the Institute of Nephrology; or even stop their work, such as the Institute of cardiac surgery. N. M. Amosova). In the same tragic situation all city and regional in Kiev and in other areas of Ukraine medical institutions. To date, almost all hospitals either do not receive or receive 10%, a maximum of 15 % of the funds necessary for their functioning and the provision of emergency and specialized, and even more so, highly specialized medical care. The medical reform has another goal, officially veiled-it is the collapse of all multi-stage and well-established medical care to the population.

Special attention should be paid to the prices for medical services, which are many times (5, 10, and sometimes 20 times) higher than the real income not only of the poorest segments of the population but also the so-called middle class. This means that 85 % of the population of Ukraine to obtain the necessary medical care will have to sell all their property and then there is no confidence that it will save the unfortunate patient who will be forced to apply to a medical institution operating under the system of paramedic U. Suprun. So, 85% of Ukrainians become victims of the Ukrainian-American “medicomor” 2018!


With regret about what is happening in the health care system of Ukraine, academician and Vice-President of the Academy of economic Sciences of Ukraine, candidate of medical Sciences.

The legalized corruption in the agrarian sector of Ukraine

The legalized corruption in the agrarian sector of Ukraine

The government and the President of Ukraine, together with parliament, having deprived of agroproducers of the preferential taxation, steal annually from farmers of Ukraine, about 6 billion 250 million US dollars. It is approximately equal in a hryvnia equivalent to 160 billion UAH. It is that main resource thanks to which the present, nonprofessional, not able to earn, kleptocratic Ukrainian power survives.

The most cynical is that the Prime minister V. Groysman knowing that they annually gather landowners within 160 billion UAH, in exchange pathosly promises direct grants to the village, 3, 6 billion UAH. Ponder what cynicism: steal 160 billion UAH, and grants give out to landowners of 3-6 billion UAH a year. And at the same time it is necessary to pay attention that grants go to friends of the President and the Prime minister. Last year nearly 2 billion UAH have been given direct grants to Mironovsky bakery product which owner is the President’s friend Yu. Kosyuk, about 1 billion UAH. The «Avangard» companies of O. Bakhmatyuk, and all others – real farmers, remained with one requisitions. This is also megacorruption in the agrarian sector.

Full nonprofessionalism of the President and the Government leads to the fact that many ordinary owners of land, for the purpose of leaving from payment of taxes, do visibility that take the earth for private use. And actually informally rent to small and average farmers. At the same time, the state receives less income tax from the rent on the earth, doesn’t receive the fixed agricultural tax on this earth and, respectively, doesn’t receive either a value added tax, or income tax, or a tax on dividends on those farmers who informally process such lands, and acreage which are in such shadow form of processing, in some areas reach 20-30%.And it is already corruption from ordinary people and farmers. Especially it is necessary to pay attention that when the farmland is processed kind of by owners independently, and in practice lease “blackly”, damage is caused not only to the budget of the state, but also the most Ukrainian earth since division of big fields into the small pieces belonging to such farmers leads to transformation of large-scale production in small-scale that complicates processing of the earth and increases prime cost and cost intensity of the most agricultural production. Besides, owners of land, using the earth “in black”, break her crop rotation, don’t use advanced technologies which I improve, but don’t worsen cadastral properties of the soil that eventually leads to loss of quality of soil and their fertility.

Lands which are in state ownership and also lands from category of not summoned shares; the lands intended for access roads to each allocated share are used by District State Administration as means for a personal profit since contracts for their rent are renewed annually and, respectively, depends on the head of the area to whom he will give for rent these lands (naturally to the one who will pay him informal “help” more). Besides, the rate of the rent can vary from 3 to 12% of the cadastral cost of the earth at the discretion of the head of District State Administration. It so-called small, but ubiquitous corruption in the agrarian sector.

These facts of corruption and nonprofessionalism of the Government in the sphere of tax, land, financial and economic regulation will lead to disorder of agrarian branch!

So if the government immediately doesn’t eliminate all above-mentioned and many other facts of corruption, nonprofessionalism and deception in relation to agroproducers, then dreams of Ukraine as to a world agrarian superpower will remain as pathetic memories of former agro-industrial rise in Ukraine, observed before coming to power of present speculators, embezzlers of public funds and laymans!


How to “take care” of Ukrainian pensioners

How to “take care” of Ukrainian pensioners

The pension reform, proposed by Prime Minister Groisman, was announced as a reform of raising pensions. However, in practice, the prepared bill is replete with “innovations”, each of which, as a rule, are incompatible with each other, neither theoretically, nor practically!

  1. The increase of pensions by 30%, in fact, does not meet the requirements of the Constitution of Ukraine, which was already in 2014 violated by the revolutionaries of “hydrology”. Ie, the current Constitution of Ukraine provided for an annual review of the amount of pensions until March 18 of each subsequent year in the amount of at least 50% of the minimum wage for the previous year, as well as the revision of pensions in the presence of inflation, which, in fact, was not done by our ” revolutionaries “neither in 2014, nor in 2015, nor in 2016. During this time, the dollar has risen, at least three times or more! Thus, the state’s debt to retirees is much more than 140 billion hryvnia. A 30 percent increase in pensions does not compensate even for the tenth part of the losses suffered by retired people as a result of galloping inflation (populism and deceit of the current government are once again demonstrated to the Ukrainian people).
  2. Various verbal formulations in determining the total length of retirement seniority do not allow many people who have reached the age of 60 to receive a full-fledged pension, rather than the so-called social pension. The use of formulations such as “declared employment”, as well as a gradual increase in the total length of service from 15 to 35 years will lead to the fact that at least 60-70% of the population will not live to their pension (after all, the government is well aware that before the 60-year-old age does not reach 40% of men and more than 20% of women)! The high mortality rate is a direct result of a low standard of living: 80% of the population lives below the poverty line, while according to various sources, about 10% of the population is actually starving. The quality and high cost of medical care plus the chronic social stress associated with the civil war, the influx of migrants deprived of basic means of livelihood, the ever increasing robbery and banditry in the streets of cities and villages of Ukraine is an incomplete list of factors that reduce the life expectancy of our people.
  3. Catastrophic aging as a percentage of the society, that if two pensioners were employed for one pensioner, today one pensioner is employed for each pensioner. And in a year or two, two pensioners will fall on one worker, especially since 80% of Ukrainian families are suffering from the war in Ukraine and 80% of Ukrainian families are in a difficult financial condition, young able-bodied people leave the country, which could be the basis for the revival of the Ukrainian economy and which could increase the birth rate of Ukrainians and stop the catastrophic disparity between mortality and fertility in Ukraine (mortality is two or more times higher than the birth rate).
  4. In the so-called “pension reform,” mistakes related to the size of pensions for people whose wages exceed UAH 40,000 per month are still not taken into account, that is, a single social contribution is charged on wages that do not exceed 40 thousand UAH per month. The same officials, for example, judges, prosecutors, employees of some law enforcement agencies, whose salaries are equal to 100-200-300 thousand UAH per month, pay taxes only from the amount of 40 thousand UAH, and they will receive a pension of 90% of the amount official salary. For example, if an official received 100 thousand UAH. a month he will be credited with a pension of 90 thousand UAH per month. Considering that the so-called solidarity form of payment of pensions is preserved in Ukraine, this means that he will pay taxes during his working life not from 100 thousand hryvnas, but only from 40 thousand hryvnias, and his accrued over 50 thousand hryvnias will be withdraw from the general boiler at the expense of the bulk of other working people. What kind of social justice are we talking about?
  5. The declaration by different governments since 2000 of the intention to introduce a so-called personalized funded pension is also unreal for today for several reasons: first, constant inflation will eat up the accumulated money, and secondly, many people who, from the 1990s onwards This year they lose their jobs as a result of the stoppage and disintegration of both state and private enterprises as a result of the chronic economic crisis, they are innocent of the fact that their often highly skilled hands turn out to be of no use to anyone, ybrasyvayut out and they are forced to earn a living in the markets, in various private and public companies as vremennyhraznorabochih, merchants, etc., without a permanent job, and without proper employment records. As a result, many really struggling for survival and constantly working people who have reached retirement age, as if lacking official, declared work experience. As a consequence, they will receive a tiny social pension instead of a full-fledged, deserved by their own labor!
  6. “Pension reform”, written by the Großman government under the dictation of the International Monetary Fund, aims not to improve the social standard of living of pensioners, but to reduce their numbers through artificial stimulation of the death rate of the population through impoverishment, malnutrition, lack of basic medical care, chronic stress like consequence of the severe socio-economic and political situation within Ukraine.
  7. In the so-called pension reform, not a word is said that in fact, the solution of all problems of pensioners, including the huge deficit of the pension fund (140 billion UAH), must be carried out entirely by other means and methods. In fact, the solution to this problem lies only in the plane of the upsurge of the disintegrated Ukrainian economy, the disorganized system of medical care, the collapsed system of law enforcement agencies, the collapsed judicial system and many other crisis processes that arose in the country after the advent of swindlers and amateurs on the wave. called, “revolution of hydrology”.

Only the coming to power by universal democratic elections of a new parliament, the Government and the President, which will be distinguished by high education, honesty, diligence and professionalism can allow to change the economic and social policy in the country, including to solve the problem of Ukrainian pensioners. There is no other way!
