According to the Law of Ukraine "On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine on pension provision" of 2 March 2015, the Pension Fund of Ukraine shall terminate the appointment of the special pensions to MPs, ministers, judges, prosecutors, customs officers, tax officers and other officials from June 1, 2015. Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko announced on air of 24 TV Channel.

"It won’t work to delay the abolition of special pensions. This is my principled position, as Minister for Social Policy, and that of the Government as whole," he said.

Pavlo Rozenko reminded the Law of Ukraine adopted by the Verkhovna Rada in March had envisaged that the Government must submit a package of laws on pension reform before May 1, and unless the Parliament approved it before June 1, the system of special pensions in Ukraine would cease to exist. "We have fulfilled the norm of the Law and before May 1 have submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a systemic pension reform, which the Parliament, unfortunately, hasn’t considered and adopted yet", said the Minister of Social Policy.

"Hence, from 1 June 2015, the Pension Fund of Ukraine ceases to appoint the pensions following special laws. From June all the pensions for MPs, ministers, judges, prosecutors, customs officers, tax officers and other officials will be assigned pursuant to the Law of Ukraine "On mandatory state pension insurance", on terms equal with all ordinary people," stressed the Minister, noting that this norm does not apply to scientists and the military.

"We will fulfil this norm of the law with great pleasure. This is our principled position. There won’t be compromise on further existence of the shameful VIP-pension system", accentuated Pavlo Rozenko.
