The Ukrainian government on Monday made the decision to set up a separate state service for veterans, disabled persons, and participants in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) in the Donbas.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk told this to reporters on Monday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“We consulted this morning in the government what to do, because the war will end and there will be peace in Ukraine, but today thousands were wounded in the ATO and many families were left without a breadwinner… So this morning we decided to create a separate state service for veterans, disabled persons and ATO participants,” Yatseniuk said.
He said that the service would deal with social security of all participants in the anti-terrorist operation, including their registration. The service should also ensure employment, medical, psychological rehabilitation, as well as the provision of housing to those families who lost their breadwinners.
