The Chairman of the Regional Council met with the families of fallen heroes
Today, the Chairman of the Regional Council Volodymyr Chubirko met with family members of the killed servicemen, who served in the ATO area: Yulia Martin (wife of the deceased), Natalia Popadynets (mother), Marina Georgieva (wife) and Nadia Rehotun (wife).
Volodymyr Chubirko noted that in the region there are already 63 families who have lost defenders. "We are trying to solve the problems of these families. There are issues with the allocation of housing, because the government has not provided funds to purchase it. Therefore, the regional authorities assist families of the Heroes on their own. Each family received 100,000 UAH from the budget. Another initiative of the region is that such families can receive interest-free loans for housing repairs," - the Chairman of the Regional Council said.
Volodymyr Chubirko also reported that every deputy of the regional council would be responsible for certain families of killed soldiers and take care of these families. The Chairman of the Regional Council is willing to take care of the four families.
The family members said that the main problem is that they had not received housing from the state. No memorials have been set on the graves of the soldiers on the Hill of Glory. Recently, they finally received land in Uzhgorod. Also, the children of these families are exempt from payment for kindergartens and for meals at schools. Also, they expressed their appreciation that the regional government hears their problems and helps to solve everyday problems at the local level.
