During its session on July 14, the Cabinet of Ministers backed decisions aimed at supporting Ukrainian veterans.
Thus, the Government has established the Ukrainian Veterans Fund, which should start operating in 2022. According to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, this will allow for accumulating funding to be used exclusively to support veterans, including the veterans' businesses.
"The newly created Fund will help attract financial and logistical resources for the implementation of programs and projects aimed at reintegrating veterans into active social life, improving professional and educational levels and doing business as well," said the Prime Minister.
Moreover, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the redistribution of state budget funds for the creation of new electronic services for veterans - the Unified State Register of War Veterans and the Electronic Veteran Account.
"Creating a new digital infrastructure will allow to optimize and integrate information, for example, about benefits and programs for veterans, which they use or will be able to use," said Denys Shmyhal.
In addition, the Government has formed a working group to organize and ensure the training of the Ukrainian national team and its participation in the international competition Warrior Games to be held in September this year in Orlando, the USA.
"The Ukrainian military must have every opportunity for training. Despite the disability obtained as a result of the injuries, the Ukrainian warriors continue to lead an active lifestyle. The example of resilience of Ukrainian veterans is really inspiring. I am confident that the Ukrainian military will continue to win sports competitions as well," the Prime Minister said.
