According to the Ministry, the families of the deceased servicemen will choose the accurate date.
“The Ministry supports the initiative to appoint the separate date of the commemoration of the deceased soldiers and to set the Commemoration Day in Ukraine. This date should be appointed by the families of the deceased soldiers. Their propositions will be taken into account and will be represented to the higher authorities”, said Oksana Havryliuk, the Deputy Minister of Veteran Affairs of Ukraine.
The decision to poll the families of the deceased ones was taken during the session of the Ministry’s working group. The representatives of the Ministry will conduct those polls in each region of Ukraine separately. The results will be represented to the higher authorities.
