Social policy in Ukraine during wartime - Foundation Office Ukraine
2022 brought Ukraine significant challenges due to the full-scale invasion by Russia, resulting in human casualties, economic decline, and substantial losses. With the support of international partners, the government focused on critical social spending to address the crisis and combat rising poverty.
Despite budget constraints, Ukraine continued to finance social programs and stimulate employment to maintain its social security system and economic stability. During the war, the government emphasized digitization to ensure better access to social assistance for Ukrainians. Efforts were made to support internally displaced persons (IDPs) through simplified registration, funding for IDP assistance, and providing shelters where possible.
In 2023, more efforts were made to streamline social assistance to account for limited funding, population needs, and the push for the integration of specific vulnerable population groups into the labor market.
