The Cabinet of Ministers has set up a commission to find out the data on wages of military men, involved in liquidation of the Chornobyl NPP accident consequences.

Such a decision was voiced by vice prime minister, social policy minister Serhiy Tihipko, while he commented on the decree on the commission to find out the data on wages (cash security), received by a person for work (service) in the exclusion zone in 1986-1990. The decree was approved at the Cabinet’s meeting on July 16, 2012.

According to the vice prime minister, the commission will assist in solving the problems of disabled liquidators from among former soldiers who cannot receive an earnings record from already liquidated military units and therefore have no right to higher pensions.

"Currently, such liquidators cannot receive the earnings record for the work in the exclusion zone, therefore they receive minimum pensions, which are less than the average Chernobyl pensions. To rectify this injustice, the government set up special commissions subject to Defense Ministry, Interior Ministry, Emergencies Ministry, Security Service of Ukraine and its territorial bodies. These commissions will start to work within a current month," Serhiy Tihipko said.

According to the official, nearly five thousand disabled liquidators, who are unable to confirm the level of their wages they received during the liquidation of the Chornobyl NPP accident consequences, now receive pensions almost twice lower than the average pension for these categories.
