Veteran of Great Patriotic War assigned and given long service pension

24 June 2016

With assistance of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, the right of a veteran of the Great Patriotic War (1941–1945), retired lieutenant colonel, to receive a long service pension. The required documents were processed; the veteran received all the money due and will further receive the superannuation.

On 18 January, the High Commissioner received a request of the Commissioner for Human Rights in Moscow. Tatiana Potyaeva expressed her concern about the problem of a veteran, retired lieutenant colonel, born in 1918. From 1983 to 2014, the veteran had lived in Lugansk, but in 2015 he obtained Russian citizenship and moved to Moscow. To assign the long service pension to him, the internal affairs bodies required his certificate from the Pension Fund of Ukraine. However, repeated requests of the Ministry of Internal Affairs’ bodies were left without a reply. So, the veteran could not receive his money.

On 2 February, the High Commissioner requested Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Valeria Lutkovska to help the veteran. On 11 May, the High Commissioner’s Office was informed that the interference of the Ukrainian Commissioner had been successful. The Pension Fund of Ukraine had finally sent the required documents; the veteran was assigned the pension and given all the money due to him since his request to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia.
