said that not all got the payment. Somewhere it
is due to red tape, someone has failed to write a piece of paper. And we forget about

the way a state treats its defenders causes the way people treat their state,"
the Prime Minister underlined.
that 35 thousand servicemen would return from the ATO

with their families."
Minister appealed to Chairman of the State Service for ATO
Veterans and Participants Arthur Derevianko: "Now a lot depends on you. Everybody
is at your disposal: Prime Minister, Ministers, all
regional administrations. Your
highest responsibility today is to provide those who up in arms defended
Ukraine with the proper respect and support from the Ukrainian state and the
Ukrainian government. It
is our mutual duty."

reminded that the Cabinet of Ministers had allocated funds for prosthetics of ATO soldiers abroad. The
Prime Minister instructed the State Service for ATO Veterans
and Participants jointly with the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine and
