By year end, 633 families will get the apartments. This was informed at a briefing by First Deputy Minister of Social Policy of Ukraine Vasyl Shevchenko, as UKRINFORM correspondent reports.
"This is 300 million hryvnia, which are allocated proportionally during the year. These funds are aimed to buy 633 apartments for the victims' families, "- said Shevchenko.
He said the purchase of housing is actively pursued by the local bodies of government. In particular, in Zhitomir 16 apartments bought to be given for families of those killed or disabled (groups of disability I and II), in Zakarpattya - 7, in the Mykolaiv region - 5, in Dnipropetrovsk -18, in Kiev - 32 apartments. Along with this program a special program is implemented by the State Service of Ukraine for war veterans and members of anti-terrorist operations (ATO) to provide housing for soldiers participating in ATO. The head of this Service Artur Derevyanko assured that it is planned by the end of year that 27 members of counterterrorist operation families will have their homes. "Funds are enough. Housing will be purchased for them by the end of the year. If we will have someone else to appear, the money will be enough to support the disabled persons of group I and II ", - assured the official. As we know, in May of this year, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that for the purchase of housing for military personnel participating ATO and the families of those killed in eastern Ukraine security forces will be allocated 1 billion hryvnyas. Subsequently, the Cabinet of Ministries has allocated to the Ministry of Social Policy 300 million UAH for subsidies to buy apartments for families of fallen soldiers and disabled groups I-II.
