President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko supports the idea to create a new department in Ukraine – Ministry of Veterans Affairs, as he said during his business trip to Sumy Oblast, broadcasted by 112.UA Channel.

“I want to thank every veteran who fought in Donbas, and I want to address Verkhovna Rada and the government with an errand to analyze the possibility of creating Ministry of Veterans Affairs, because they are the ones who should be role models for future soldiers protecting Ukraine,” the President said.
