As of April 25, 2022, Ukrposhta delivered 80% of pensions (or UAH 8.5 billion). Delivery of pensions is carried out in all regions. Payment of April pensions is almost finished in the Odesa region (100%), Kirovohrad region (99%), Ivano-Frankivsk region (98%), Volyn and Poltava regions (97% each), Zhytomyr and Lviv regions (95% each), Dnipropetrovsk and Zakarpattia regions (94% each). Due to the fact that Ukrposhta resumed work of its branches immediately after the liberation of Sumy and Chernihiv regions, the payment of pensions in these regions is going on schedule and at the end of the third week of April makes 86% and 73% respectively.
Slower due to constant shelling, but with encouraging dynamics, pensions are being paid out in Donetsk (53%) and Mykolaiv (54%) regions.
The situation remains difficult in Luhansk (2%), Kherson (10%) and Zaporizhia (40%) regions. The Russian military occupiers are blocking access to cities and villages, which makes it almost impossible to deliver pensions on time. As soon as humanitarian routes are formed to cities that are under fire or are temporarily occupied by Russian invaders, Ukrposhta will immediately deliver the payments.
"All Ukrposhta employees understand the importance of delivering pensions. Our delivery personal risk their lives every day to bring Ukrainian pensioners their money and basic necessities. We are constantly in dialogue with local authorities and when we have a possibility to pay out pensions, we do it immediately. In April, we continued to deliver March pensions to regions where it was not possible to deliver money earlier. Due to this, at the end of the month, we have good payout indicators in Chernihiv and Sumy regions. This gives us hope that despite the difficult situation in Zaporizhia, Kherson, and other regions, we will soon be able to deliver money there", - commented Ukrposhta Director General Igor Smelyanskyi.
