23.05.2018  Decision of the Constitutional Court No. 5-р-2018: the abolition of certain benefits and the right to early retirement was declared unconstitutional because of a violation of the principle of legal certainty



The Constitutional Court of Ukraine declared unconstitutional in particular the abrogation of Article 21 of the Law on the Fundamental Principles of Social Protection of Veterans of Labor and other Old Believers in Ukraine regarding the early retirement of citizens who were fired in the age 1,5 year before reaching the retirement age.


The court pointed out that the Verkhovna Rada, having excluded this rule,  canceled the guarantee for the elderly to early retirement, the purpose of which was to effectively implement the constitutional human rights for social protection and an adequate standard of living.

The court found a violation of the principle of legal certainty, because the transition period between the promulgation of the Law and the entry of this rule was less than one day, which is clearly not enough for the subjects of law to adapt to legislative novels and adjust their actions to realize the right to early retirement.
