Since the start of conflict in Donbas, the Ukrainian government has paid over UAH 57 billion to internally displaced persons, UAH 30 billion of which are pensions, according to First Deputy Verkhvna Rada Chairman Iryna Gerashchenko, who is currently on a working visit to Strasbourg.

“Together with my colleagues in Parliament and, most importantly, representatives of the local government in Donetsk, Luhansk, Dnipro, today in Strasbourg, at the invitation of the Council of Europe, we are discussing problems of internally displaced persons and the protection of human rights ... Much attention was paid to the issue of pension payments in the occupied territories. I’ve noted that in the course of these two years of conflict, Ukraine has paid over UAH 57 billion (UAH 30 billion of which are pensions, the rest – social payments] to the displaced persons. So any blockade [of payments] is out of the question,” Gerashchenko wrote on her Facebook page.
