Legal news in Ukraine: Amendments to Customs Code and new rules for crossing border with Crimea are in force, Constitutional Court examines recalculation of pension for civil servants, candidates selection for Attorney General’s Office continues

Amendments to the Customs Code on Administrative Reform are in force

On February 13, 2020, the Law of Ukraine «On Amendments to the Customs Code of Ukraine and Some Other Laws of Ukraine in connection with the Administrative Reform» came into force.

The law amended the legislation of Ukraine in terms of improving the structure of government in the field of state customs and tax policy in Ukraine, taking into account the formation of the State Customs and State Tax Services.

The Law introduces a new format for the activities of the State Customs Service and the State Tax Service as sole legal entities. Their territorial bodies will operate not as legal entities under public law, but as separate units.

The Law harmonises the provisions of the legislative acts of Ukraine in connection with the reform of customs and tax authorities.

The document amends the Customs Code, the Code of Administrative Judiciary of Ukraine, the Civil Procedure Code, the Commercial Procedure Code, the Laws «On Central Executive Bodies» and «On Civil Service».

The law provides for the possibility of delegation of certain powers by the head of the central body of executive power to the head of the territorial body.

The legislative act also defines the specifics of remuneration of civil servants of the State Customs Service and the State Tax Service.

The law also amended a number of legislative acts of Ukraine regarding the clarification of certain features of the powers of the tax authorities, the Pension Fund for the collection and accounting of a single contribution, and the like.

New rules for the procedure of crossing the administrative border with Crimea are in force

On February 9, 2020, changes to the procedure for departure and entry into the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine for children entered into force.

The amendments were approved by the Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on December 24, 2019.

According to the changes, children under the age of 16 can travel to the occupied territory accompanied by one of the parents (parents (adoptive parents), guardians, trustees or other legal representatives) or persons authorized by them.

Such an opportunity arises if these children entered the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities accompanied by these adults. In such cases, the presence of a second parent or instructions from him is not necessary.

According to the changes, children under the age of 16 can travel to the occupied territory accompanied by one of the parents (parents (adoptive parents), guardians, trustees or other legal representatives) or persons authorized by them.

Such an opportunity arises if these children entered the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities accompanied by these adults. In such cases, the presence of a second parent or instructions from him is not necessary.

Departure of children from 14 to 16 years of age to the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine, whose parents reside in this territory, is possible without unaccompanied access if there is information about the education of these children in the Unified State Electronic Base on Education.

Persons who wish to enter the occupied territory and who left it for the issue of ID and Ukrainian citizenship documents must obtain a certificate from the migration services.

The same document is required for the departure of these persons from the occupied territory.

In addition, departure to the occupied territory and entry from it by citizens of Ukraine who have not reached the age of 16 is carried out upon presentation of a passport of a citizen of Ukraine or a foreign passport.

Constitutional Court will consider recalculation of pension for civil servants

On February 17, 2020 the Grand Chamber of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine will begin consideration of the case on the constitutional submission of the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights.

The Ombudsman requests recognition of the unconstitutionality of article 90, subparagraph 1 of paragraph 2 of section XI «Final and transitional provisions» of the Law of Ukraine «On Public Service» dated December 10, 2015 (No. 889) and of part 7 of article 21 of the Law of Ukraine «On Service in Local Government» from June 7, 2001 (No. 2493).

The contested provisions of Law No. 889 stipulate that the pension provision of public servants is carried out in accordance with the Law of Ukraine «On Compulsory State Pension Insurance» (Article 90). A similar provision is enshrined in part seven of Article 21 of Law No. 2493 regarding local government officials.

In accordance with subparagraph 1 of paragraph 2 of section XI «Final and transitional provisions» of Law No. 889, the Law of Ukraine «On Public Service» dated December 16, 1993 No. 3723-XII as amended was repealed. Thus, only civil servants who have had the requisite civil service experience on the date of entry into force of Law No. 889 can receive a pension under prior conditions.

The petitioner notes that the disputed provisions of these laws are not in accordance with the Constitution of Ukraine, since they do not provide for recounting (indexing) of pensions of the corresponding category of pensioners.

The selection of candidates for Attorney General’s Office continues

As of February 10, 2020, 1,185 candidates submitted their documents to participate in the selection of 100 vacant prosecutor posts in the Office of the Attorney General.

Reception of documents lasted from January 20 to February 9, 2020. The Office of the Attorney-General still receives mail applications that were sent on time.

Applicants who will be admitted to the selection will be tested for knowledge of the law. Thereafter, 300 people with the highest score, but not less than 70, will be tested for general ability.

The 200 candidates with the highest score will be eligible for interviews.

After completion of this process, a general rating will be formed with about 100 candidates. They will undergo an internship at the training center and the Office of the Attorney General, after which a final rating will be formed, according to which candidates will choose positions.
