By Varvara Zhluktenko, IOM Ukraine

Eastern Ukraine is shuddering through a fourth winter of armed conflict. Some 3.4 million men, women and children are locked in a dire humanitarian situation right on Europe’s doorstep. Over 30 per cent of those affected are elderly and 60 per cent are women or children. One might think that the protracted nature of this crisis means that the needs of conflict-affected population in Ukraine are not pressing.

Wrong.

Highlights

  • Even IDP pensioners permanently registered in the Government Controlled Areas (GCA) cannot receive pensions without IDP registration: Most departments of the Pension Fund of Ukraine (PFU) refuse to provide pensions to these IDPs without IDP registration.
    Therefore, these IDPs continue renewing their IDP registration solely to receive their pensions.
