Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk emphasized this on the program of the Ivano-Frankivsk regional television “Halychyna”.
The number of veterans will soon increase many times over, according to the official. Therefore, it is necessary to develop steps toward the formation of a unified state veterans’ policy.
The first important step in this regard should be a new law on veterans.
“The president has set the relevant tasks for its development. We must work on them and fulfill all the components,” the Vice Prime Minister said.
Among other things, Iryna Vereshchuk recalled a pilot project to introduce an institute of veterans’ assistants. She believes that every veteran should have an assistant. It must be on a peer-to-peer basis. So that veterans who have been through this journey and can share their experiences can help each other.
“Our veterans should not have to stand in line and feel a lack of respect and attention. Therefore, it is a top priority for the state to ensure that they are treated with dignity and have all the necessary conditions to resume normal life,” the official summarized.
