Protecting citizens despite conflict

Published 12. Dec 2017
In November 2014, the Government of Ukraine took a decision to stop payment of pensions and social payments to the citizens remaining in non-government controlled areas. The Government of Ukraine should provide all citizens, irrespective of their location in the country, with access to their earned entitlements.

In search of potential mechanisms to provide pensions for citizens living in non-government controlled areas, the experience of other countries of the region may prove useful. In this regard, one of the most relevant examples may be Georgia.
