Influence of Resolutions of the PACE on Pension Payments in Donbas
On October 12, 2016 Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted the resolution number 2133. Fourth paragraph of the Resolution mentions the following: "Under international law, the Russian Federation, which exercises de facto control over these territories, is responsible for the protection of their population. Russia must therefore guarantee the human rights of all inhabitants of Crimea and of the “DPR” and “LPR”.".
The adoption of this resolution allows to take a new look at Ukraine's commitments on paying pensions and social assistance at the occupied territories — whether Ukraine has to continue the payments and what the consequences of adoption PACE resolution to the occupied territories will be.
In order to discuss possible consequences of the PACE Resolution, NGOs "Foundation.101" and "Ukrainian Institute for the Future" will hold a round table titled: "The impact of PACE Resolution on Ukrainian policy at the occupied territories. Is Ukraine responsible for payments of pensions and social assistance at the occupied territories?".
Ukrainian Members of the Parliament, representatives of Ministries and departments are invited to participate.
The event will take place on October 27, 2016 at 12:00 in the premises of "Ukrainian Institute for the Future". The address is Kyiv, O. Gonchara str., 65, floor 6.
We invite representatives of non-governmental and charity organizations, media and other interested parties to participate in the round table.
