The Agreement between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of the Republic of Moldova on Pension Benefits for Persons Dismissed from the Military Service and Their Family Members, and Other Types of Social Security for Such Persons (hereinafter referred to as "Agreement") was signed on October 21, 2007 in Kyiv.

The Constitution of Ukraine (Article 85, paragraph 32) states that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine provides consent for Ukraine to be bound by international agreements. And, according to Article 9 of the Law of Ukraine "On International Agreements of Ukraine" the Agreement is subject to ratification.

The Law ratifies the Agreement.

According to Article 1 of the Agreement, pension benefits for persons of the Party states dismissed from the military service in the Armed Forces, other military formations created according to the legislation of the Party states, the Joint Armed Forces of the Commonwealth of Independent States, and the Armed Forces and other military formations of the former USSR, as well as pension benefits for their family members are provided according to the terms, norms and procedure established by the legislation of the Party states at the place of permanent residence of such persons.

Pension benefits for persons dismissed from the military service and their family members are awarded and paid by respective authorized bodies of the Parties exclusively at the place of their permanent residence. In case of relocation from the territory of one Party state of the Agreement to the territory of the other Party state for permanent residence, pension benefits are no longer paid at the previous place of residence. Information of pension files forwarded for continued provision of pension benefits under the Agreement is translated to the official language of the Party state of the pensioner's residence or to Russian, by the body that is forwarding the information (Article 2 of the Agreement).

Article 3 of the Agreement envisages that the pensionable service for awarding pensions to persons dismissed from the military service shall include the time of service (including on concessional terms) in the Armed Forces and other military formation, according to the procedure established by the legislation of the Party state in which the person dismissed from the military service had served. The amount of pension benefits for persons dismissed from the military service and their family members is determined according to the procedure established by the legislation of the Party state of the permanent residence of such persons.

Expenses related to pension benefits of the above persons and state social guarantees provided for by the legislation of the Party state of their permanent residence are borne by the Parties, at the expense of their funds allocated for financing such measures, without mutual settlement between the Parties (Article 4 of the Agreement).
