Kyiv Court of Appeal Resolution of 4 July 2018

On 04 July 2018, the Kyiv Court of Appeal confirmed the decision of the Kyiv Circuit Administrative Court dd. 29 June 2017 on recognizing several points of Governmental Resolutions 365 and 637 as not corresponding to the Law on IDPs and Law on ensuring the mandatory State pension. Referring to the legislation in force, the Kyiv Court of Appeal agreed with the conclusion of the lower instance court on the discriminatory nature of the disputed points as they define additional criteria for IDPs willing to receive social benefits and pensions. The existence of such criteria put IDP-pensioners in less favourable conditions in comparison with other pensioners and social benefits’ recipients.
