Having received the minutes of the constituent assembly and the full technical report-analysis from the representatives of the Steering Committee's for the formation of the Public Council under the Ministry Volodymyr Flionts and Vitaly Kuzmenko, the Minister for Veterans Affairs Iryna Friz signed an order approving the composition of the Public Council under the Ministry of Veterans Affairs.
However, in order to avoid complaints and remarks, the Minister submitted an appeal to the Department of Cyber police of the National Police of Ukraine.
"I want to answer the question at once - why approval of the composition should have been made without waiting for the verification results? Because this process can take from several months to several years, and the Ministry is obliged to shape its activities in accordance with the current legislation solely under public control, which should be carried out by the Public Council. If the conclusions of the inspection will affect someone from those who became a member of the Public Council, we will exclude without delays. None will have immunity. But now the Ministry needs cooperation with the public because we have the ultimate goal – to establish an effective agency to protect the interests of veterans", said Iryna Friz.
