Mykola Tomenko stated that Yulia Tymoshenko, Prime Minister of Ukraine, and he as a Vice Prime Minister in charge of humanitarian and social matters had initiated elimination of elite pensions in Ukraine four years ago. Pursuant to the submitted Bill, the highest possible pension shall not exceed 10 minimum pensions.  

However, more than 50 MPs, including representatives of the Party of Regions, the Communist Party of Ukraine, the People´s Movement of Ukraine and other political forces appealed to the Constitutional Court in 2005 with a request, which said that "the regulations limit and reduce the rate of pensions of certain groups of Ukrainian population, which results in the contraction of content and scope of the right for pension provision".  

"At present, when the President´s team has finally understood that elite pensions should be eliminated, it can be rapidly realized. However, according to Tomenko, we lost four years due to the failure of the President´s team to uphold the idea in 2005".
