At the same time, February 25, President Poroshenko announced that Ukraine’s retirees with the lowest pensions would get a 90 USD one-time payment before elections in March or in April of 2019. 1,8 million out of Ukraine’s 11,5 million pensioners are promised to get the money. An average pension in Ukraine amounts to nearly 100 USD, but there are some pensioners who receive 55 USD a month. Ukraine's law enforcers do not interpret Poroshenko's step as bribing the voters in the run-up to the presidential election.
