In this regard, on 4 September Minister flies to Poland at the invitation of the Marshall of the Sejm for a meeting with government colleagues in Poland. The discussion will, in particular, the problems of Ukrainian labor migrants in Poland.
“The idea is there if they pay for 5 years – they will be eligible to retire, and they can get it, including in Ukraine without issues. And those who work there and are not insured, they are also not insured here. The problem is that the person should be insured or in Poland or in Ukraine, because most of our labor migrants still come back,” said the Minister.
