The Presidential Secretariat urges steps to overcome inflation

Top deputy President’s Chief of Staff, President’s representative to the Cabinet of Ministers Oleksander Shlapak claims it is necessary to urgently introduce amendments into the state budget-2008.

He claimed this to journalists today, answering a question of an UNIAN correspondent.

“We already have 13% of cumulative inflation. Thus, 13% [of income] have already been withdrawn from every pensioner and citizen. Clearly, it is time to make decision… It is necessary to settle this issue, to return pensioners [the money] they lost because of the inflation”, he said.
