UHHRU demands that parliamentarians reinstate Ukrainians right to a pension
Due to lack of action by National Deputies, Ukrainians who have gone abroad are having their right to a pension infringed. A person who has played social security all their life and earned the right to a pension, cannot receive it outside the country, since there is no legislative base for this.
More than a year ago, the Constitutional Court ordered parliament to regulate this issue via legislation, yet since then there has been no change. The draft laws drawn up were found inadequate and require serious reworking. This was noted by the scientific assessment department of the Verkhovna Rada.
The Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union has addressed a letter to the Verkhovna Rada demanding that the Deputies heed the judgment from the Constitutional Court and asking for information as to what legislative work is underway to rectify the situation.
