Proposed by the Ministry of social policy to the Verkhovna Rada the new rules for calculating pensions of the military in need of serious revision.
“Announced by the Minister of social policy Andrei Reva achievements only made in the draft of the future law. Yes, there is a positive thing – for those who retired from the APU from 1991 to 2014 eliminated the disparity in pensions. But in General, the proposed concept the approach is far from social justice. He divides all military retirees into two categories – those who retired prior to 2014 (for which a pension offered to increase minimal) and those who retired after 2014, or will be released in the future (for them the pension is calculated by a separate formula, and is increased significantly). This concept I do not consider adequate,” he wrote in Facebook the people’s Deputy from “popular front” Dmitry Tymchuk.
The MP noted that the warrant officer, who was not in the ATO and all these years spent in the rear, now retired, will have retired more than a Colonel in Afghan.
“Where is the justice I personally do not understand”, – he stressed.
Besides, Tymchuk noted that the defense Ministry does not yet support the concept, at the meeting of the Committee, said the defense Minister Stepan Poltorak.
The decision about increase of pensions in this form cannot be performed due to a simple lack of funds.
“After all, retired military personnel need to find more than 30 billion this year, which is not in the budget. But that’s no reason to make a “pension segregation” for the military in the foreseeable future”, – concluded Dmitry Tymchuk.
February 7, under the Parliament building, a rally of retired military personnel, who demanded higher pensions. The action was attended by about 400 protesters. They are representatives of the coordination Council of veteran organizations of power structures of the Ukrainian Union of associations of combatants and veterans of military service, the Union of officers of Ukraine. Activists were holding posters with inscriptions: “we Demand the recalculation of pensions”, “No to the genocide of the military pensioners.”
