Is the "іо" supposed to be a diphthong, or are the vowels pronounced separately?

They are usually two vowels, but in a fast speech it can sound closer to "пенсьонер"

It is not a diphthong. Just two vowels, one after another.

Diphthongs in Ukranian do not work like that.

it is pronounced without a pause between i and o, if that's what you are interested in.
