Note. 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.
