On November 19, the Law "On the social and legal protection of persons in respect of whom the fact of deprivation of personal freedom as a result of armed aggression against Ukraine and members of their families" is established in Ukraine. It is reported by the Pension Fund of Ukraine.

"Citizens of Ukraine, in respect of which, according to the Law of Ukraine No. 2010-IX, the fact of deprivation of personal freedom as a result of armed aggression against Ukraine is established, are subject to compulsory state pension insurance," the statement said.

It is noted that insurance premiums for them for the entire period of captivity and within six months after release are paid from the state budget.

The document provides that the period of captivity will be counted in the insurance pension period, as well as in the insurance period of work in harmful conditions, which gives the right to assign a preferential pension.
