Transcarpathians, who receive Hungarian pensions, may be deprived of them

Transcarpathians are actively discussing the latest initiative of the former prime minister of Hungary, Ferenc Gyurcsany (Hungarian Socialist Party "Democratic Coalition") on the collection of signatures for the abolition of pensions for Ukrainians and Russians, who have been appearing lately in large amounts in Hungarian border villages.

Gyurcsany, as the chairman of the party, announced the collection of signatures during the annual congress of the National Council of the DC, which was held in Budapest on January 12.

Gyurcsany proposes to ask citizens of Hungary whether they agree that Russian and Ukrainians citizens, who haver never worked and never paid pension contributions in Hungary, should be entitled to Hungarian pensions.

He notes that many Ukrainians and Russians receive pensions in Hungary, sometimes amounting to 200-300 thousand forints. Sometimes they provide quite dubious documents.

"Why does Hungary have to provide for people from other countries that have not paid a single forint to our Pension Fund? We know the cases where 202 people were registered in one abandoned house in order to receive social benefits," - Gyurcsany said in an interview to one of the local publications.
