Program of Assistance to the residents of the occupied territories of Donbass is clearly humanitarian in nature

17 February 2017

Today, on February 17, the Head of the Republic announced the beginning of the humanitarian assistance to our compatriots. The main goal is to support and help socially vulnerable residents of Donbass. Social payments and subsidies, provided by the program for those who are really in a difficult situation or rightfully should receive appropriate assistance, such as war veterans.

The program includes not only financial support, but also a lot of social and cultural projects that will help to unite the separated by conflict families, to restore weak cultural and social ties, again to consolidate civil society of Donbass.

We do not build "walls" and not create blockages - this program has a potential of exclusively humanitarian mission. We seek to unite, to build and to develop.
