In all areas where the martial law status has been imposed, social services and the Pension Fund bodies provide their services in full. This was announced by Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"As a result of the imposition of martial law in 10 regions of Ukraine, neither social services nor bodies of the Pension Fund have changed in any way and won’t fail to follow the schedules of their work. Everything works smooth, there won’t be any delays in payments. All welfare benefits, salaries, pensions will be received on time and in full by people", he stressed.
Moreover, Pavlo Rozenko noted that against the background of the imposition of the defense emergency status, the hryvnia remains generally stable and there are no reasons to talk about its devaluation. "Let's remember the very recent story of 2014 when the hryvnia rate "soared" threefold. For a short time, the dollar rate rose from UAH 8 up to UAH 40-50. When we are talking about the fact now that against the backdrop of a rather negative signal oт the imposition of the martial law, with the increase in certain unrest among people for last four days, the dollar has upped by 40 cents, this indicates the stability of the financial system of Ukraine. There is no catastrophe here, it is a usual fluctuation of the national currency", said the Vice Prime Minister.
