Action "Give the deserved recognition to the Volunteers!" at the Kyiv regional council
Today the National Movement "Action" held an event "Give the deserved recognition to the Volunteers!” at the Kyiv regional council.
The event was attended by activists, volunteers of ATO, participants of the hottest military battles with the invaders of Ukraine, who after two years of warfare are still not recognized as ATO participants. Therefore, they and their families do not receive adequate support from the state, and most importantly - they do not have an official recognition as defenders of Ukraine.
That is why a draft resolution "On the status of the war veterans-volunteer combatants" was submitted to the Kyiv Regional Council, which also will be submitted to the local councils throughout Ukraine. This document is intended to recognize the volunteers who participated in the fighting in the area ATO as fighters for the freedom and independence of Ukraine and introduce the following concepts to the Ukrainian legislation: volunteering war veterans, disabled volunteering war veterans, and volunteers involved in fighting. Accordingly, the financing costs associated with the introduction of these concepts will be at the expense of the local budgets in the manner prescribed by the Law of Ukraine "On the status of war veterans and warranties of their social protection".
Today the draft resolution "On the status of the war veterans-volunteer combatants" was admitted by the relevant committee of the Kyiv regional council for consideration. According to the preliminary information, our draft resolution will be submitted to the session of the Council on June 14. So, we thank everyone who have contributed to our action and who are helping our soldiers to get the deserved title of defender of Ukraine.
