Deputies of Irshava district council demand the leadership of the country to pay money the ATO participants

Deputies of Irshava district council appealed to the President of Ukraine, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Prime Minister of Ukraine regarding the delay in the payment of social welfare for servicemen taking part in the anti-terrorist operation and their families.

"Ukrainian legislation contains many acts which in varying degrees

provide for benefits for combatants. But the fact is that to date,

cash payments to the participants of the anti-terrorist operation and their

family members have not been carried out properly as provided for by the Law of Ukraine "On Social and Legal Protection of

Servicemen and their Families", in the manner prescribed by the Resolution

of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of December 25, 2013 № 975 "On approval of the

Procedure for appointment and payment of one-time financial assistance in the event of death,

full or partial disability of

soldiers, conscripts and reservists

called up for drill (or test) and special meetings or for

service in the military reserve."

If no steps to change this situation are taken immediately, the credit

to the government will decrease and discontent among the Ukrainian people will increase.

In this regard, we consider it necessary to intensify the work of relevant

public authorities to provide social guarantees and benefits for

servicemen - participants of the anti-terrorist operation, increase

preferences for the specified category, including education, employment," - the appeal reads.
