Today, Canada has allocated $ 7.7 million to create a set of free secondary legal assistance centers in Ukraine, the Government Press-office said. This sum is only a first part of the assistance that Canada is ready to allocate for the implementation of the rule of law and judicial reform in Ukraine.
Ukraine prepares to open 100 centers of free secondary legal aid. They will provide legal services, particularly, for low-income citizens, orphans and their caregivers, ATO members, and families of fallen soldiers and veterans.
Prime Minister Yatsenyuk expressed his acknowledgements to the Canadian Government, and convinced that this money will be used for preparation of future workers of the legal centers.
Yatsenyuk also stressed that the state budget for the current year provides 300 million UAH for the functioning of free secondary legal aid centers.
