The law about free meals for children of deceased military servicemen takes effect in Ukraine starting from today, January 1. 

The Parliament passed the respective law (№ 978-ІХ) in November 2020.

Previously, the government was supposed to provide free nutrition at schools for the orphaned children, those deprived of the parental care and school students of 1-4 grades coming from poor families.

However, this right was not reserved for the children who lost one of their parents, as he/she protected sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine during the Joint Forces Operation in Donbas.

Since January 1, the law is obligatory for the authoritative agencies and local governance bodies.
