KMU: Volunteers who have been directly involved in the ATO will be able to obtain the status of a combat participant.
The Cabinet of Ministers has defined a clear procedure for providing volunteers with the status of a participant in the military actions. Sometimes participants of volunteer units had to prove in courts that they defended the country in the east of Ukraine.
“This is a justice restoration. Volunteers will have benefits and social guarantees as members of military units. They will also be able to receive state social support and assistance in social and professional rehabilitation after returning from military service,” Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk commented.
