The Cabinet of Ministers approved the new package of decisions concerning the social support of the families of the Heavenly Hundred heroes. Such a decision was taken on the government session on Wednesday, on February, 20, as the Governmental Portal reports.
“We are constantly speaking with social organizations. We remember that we have to provide support to the families of the deceased ones. Last year we paid all the set payments for 100%. We had to do so. Now we should strengthen social rehabilitation and other activities. We will allocate $920,000 to buy apartments for the families. They will decide where and for what price to buy the apartments. It is important for us and we will keep in touch with them despite the time. It is just a human attitude to the feat of the heroes”, - the Preme Minister Volodymyr Groysman said.
Earlier today, February 20 marks one of the most remarkable, yet stunningly scary days of the modern Ukrainian history. Five years ago, on this particular day, dozens of unarmed people fell victims of the shootout at Instytutska street, in the very heart of the Ukrainian capital. Snipers of the law enforcement agencies gunned down protesters who tried to approach their positions in the government quarter, carrying light metal shields to protect themselves.
President Petro Poroshenko posthumously awarded 104 Heroes of Heavenly Hundreds the title of Heroes of Ukraine.
