Klymenko: each Ukrainian pensioner has impoverished in uah 93 240 during the last three years

UAH 93 240 or 55 average pensions – is the sum, which was not received by each Ukrainian pensioner during the last three years. Such data was provided by Oleksandr Klymenko – the leader of the «Uspishna Kraina» party – on his Facebook page.

The politician noted: «it does not come about another reference to #zrada». His calculations are based exclusively on statistics.

“In 2014, the Pension Fund’s expenses amounted to UAH 243.5 billion, including payment of pensions – 239.8 billion. When the exchange rate of the national currency was UAH 7.99 per dollar in early 2014, pensioners had to receive USD 30 billion. However, the hryvnia fell. According to the National Bank of Ukraine, the average annual rate in 2014 amounted to UAH 11.89. Pensioners received payments amounted to 20,2 billion, not 30”, – Klymenko wrote.

In 2015, pensioners have already lost USD 20.8 billion. In 2016, it comes about 21.8 billion.

“If we summarize it and convert to hryvnia, we will get the above-mentioned sum,” – the politician explained provided data. According to him, he will publish his calculations in near future. In particular, it comes about the sums, which were lost by average employed Ukrainian. There you will find much bigger number.

According to the generalized statistics, Ukrainian population has impoverished by 19% only for the last year. It is official summarized data, which was mentioned in the Global Wealth Report prepared by an authoritative Credit Suisse. There was only one country with worse situation.  It comes about Argentina.

Earlier, Oleksandr Klymenko published an analytical article entitled “The right to be old”. He described current course of events in social sector and the ways of resolving the problem related to socially vulnerable citizens.

In this article the politician noted that nowadays, the Pension Fund –  is actually bankrupt. In 2017, the state has no funds to pay pensions. At the same time, Klymenko reminded that there would be a e-declaration that can be taxed in order to replenish the budget. According to him, «funds, which are available for our country, will go to our citizens, including pensioners, not to paying interest on the state debt to foreign creditors”.
