In addition, the system has 54,778 members from Ukraine, 7,200 more than in February before the start of the Russian-led war.

Last year the membership of foreigners increased by 257,299 people, which is 11.8% more. Of the total number of foreign contributors, 55.8% are men (1,356,247) and 44.1% are women (1,070,378).

Seasonally adjusted social security affiliations for non-nationals increased by 4,958 workers in May from March to a total of 2,348,595 contributors, 159,174 more than before the pandemic broke out in February 2020. It is the twelfth consecutive monthly increase in the seasonally adjusted series. In the first five months of the year, the system accepted a total of 41,931 foreign workers.
