The Parliament returned scholars the pensions that had been previously cancelled.
308 deputies voted for the relevant law.
Scientists shall receive the pensions that were limited or eliminated by the pension reform of 2011 and the budget amendments of 2014.
Thus, scientists will be receiving pensions appointed before October 1, 2011.
Deputies also left pensions for retired scientists established after October 1, 2011.
However, until December 31, 2015, retired scientists will be paid only 85% of the pension.
Under the law, "scientists working on research and teaching positions shall have the right for a pension / monthly lifetime allowance in the manner and under the conditions stipulated by the Law of Ukraine "On Scientific and Scientific-Technical Activities" with temporary (until January 1, 2016) limitation of its amount to 85%."
