Ukrainian authorities have decided to gradually increase the retirement age for women.
Now the pension age for men is 60 years in Ukraine for women — 55. For 10 years, starting from the next, the retirement age for women will be increased to 60 years.
This reform is one of the conditions for Ukraine's IMF loan in the amount of 15.3 billions of dollars.
In the longer term, Ukraine plans to bring the general retirement age to the average standard.
Today, the retirement age in Ukraine, Belarus and Russia is one of the most low in the world.
