On Monday, October 20, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted Government's draft amendments to the State Budget in the section of social protection of invalids, veterans and participants of the anti-terrorist operation (No. 5146), which stipulates for the allocation of UAH 7 million for the prosthetic care abroad.

When familiarizing the MPs with the bill, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk noted that certain number of ATO participants who need prosthetics, got it in Ukraine, but for another part of them it was necessary to undergo surgery abroad.

He stressed that the Government's draft amendments to the State Budget would afford to allocate UAH 7 million by the end of the current year to finance the prosthetic surgeries abroad for the members of ATO.

Besides, UAH 2 million is to be funded for the established State Service for the participants and veterans of the anti-terrorist operation, namely, for state registration of ATO participants to "render assistance to each particular soldier, who falls under the act, to issue everyone the certificates of ATO members and, accordingly, to provide them with all social benefits and guarantees".
