The state owes to pensioners 1.8 billion hryvnia
In Ukraine, pension arrears currently amount to 1.8 billion hryvnias - the press service of the Party of Pensioners of Ukraine reported.
In February, in almost all regions of the country there are delays in the payment of pensions up to 2-4 days.
As of February 14, the Pension Fund has financed 11.4 billion hryvnias which is only half of the monthly requirement for pension payments.
