  • Flood victims start receiving financial aid from the state

    The State Treasury Service has already transferred UAH 2.66 million to pay financial assistance to residents of Kherson region. Thus, the first 532 victims will receive financial assistance from the state in the amount of UAH 5,000 per person. According to their applications, the money will be transferred to their bank accounts.

    This was discussed at an interagency meeting chaired by Iryna Vereshchuk, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine, on the issue of financial payments to the population affected by the floods caused by the destruction of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant.

    The meeting was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories, the Ministry of Social Policy, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economy, Ukrposhta, international organisations, Kherson and Mykolaiv regional military administrations.

    The participants of the meeting discussed the implementation of the Government’s decision on the payment of financial aid to the residents of Mykolaiv and Kherson regions affected by flooding as a result of the enemy’s blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant.

    In addition to government aid, residents of these regions may also receive financial assistance from international organisations. According to a representative of a UN agency, more than 12,000 flood victims have already been credited with UAH 6,600 in aid, and payments have begun.

    “There is a decision at the state level to pay one-off financial assistance to those affected by the flooding. This is the President’s decision. We need to speed up the payment process as much as possible. I also thank the international organisations that are helping our people,” said Iryna Vereshchuk.
