The Ukrainian government is not hiding that current 40-45 years-old Ukrainians should not count on pension accruals. Earlier, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal announced that in 15 years Ukraine could stop paying pensions to its citizens.

A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about economic difficulties in Ukraine, presenting it as a disintegrating country that is ready to abandon its citizens. This disinformation claim attempts to misconstrue the words of the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal.

However, in no way did he imply that the state will stop paying pensions to its citizens. On the contrary, during his speech, he announced pension reform, which would introduce a funded pension system in addition to the existing solidarity one. Read further debunking by The Insider here.
