As previously announced, representative of Ukrainian Association of Retired Persons was invited to the TV Show "In the spotlight" to discuss issues related to living wage in Ukraine.
We believe, a lot of elderly people have gathered around their TV screens to get answers to problems which bother them.
However, participation of invited representatives from Ukrainian Association of Retired Persons was canceled at the last moment before live broadcasting without reasonable for that reason.
We think that both officials and government didn't want representatives of Ukrainian Association of Retired Persons to tell the truth about todays real procedure of pension calculation for our retirees, about violation of constitutional articles, in particular article 46, which provides for a right of social protection of Ukrainian citizens. The article also states that pension and other social payments have to provide living standard not lower than a living wage.
