As stated by the Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine the Government soon or later the territories beyond the government control would be reintegrated into Ukraine. Thus, the Government needs to pay the suspended pensions anyway. Andrei Reva noted that for now the suspended pensions mounted 13.5 billion UAH.
“They say, the Government save money on the pensioners from uncontrolled part of Donbas. It’s not true. We understand that sooner or later all suspended payments are to be paid”, – the Minister stressed.
As soon as the territory passes under the control of Ukraine, the Pension Fund will have to deal with each pensioner and will restore the payment. Fortunately, we have electronic payment documentation in which any case is fixed. So, every pensioner will get all suspended payment, – Andrei Reva assured.
In case that the amount proves to be prohibitive for the budget, then the debts for the payment of pensions will be restructured and will be paid in instalments. No one can deprive a person of a person if it has been legally appointed.
