People have been promised they will receive their pensions for the whole duration they had lived in the warzone
Ukrainians, living in the separatist-held territories in the country's east, will get their full pensions, but only after Kyiv regains control of the conflict zone. This is according to Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko.
‘These residents will be able to receive their pensions in full for the whole time they had lived in the occupied zone, provided that it returns under Ukraine's control', Rozenko said.
After militants took over those parts of the country's territories, the state Pension Fund ceased providing its services there.
Ukraine says, the residents still can get their social payments, but in order to do so they must register at a Fund department in areas outside the conflict zone.
