About 300 Chernobyl liquidators from different regions of Ukraine are holding an action near the Cabinet of Ministers.

The participants explain that they have gathered today to support the dialogue between the authorities and Chernobyl public organizations.

They also believe that the parliament must adopt a draft bill, which provides for 6-10 thousand hryvnias pension for Chernobyl liquidators.

In his turn, Yuriy Andreev, president of the All-Ukrainian public organization of the disabled Union Chernobyl of Ukraine told UKRINFORM that his Union does not support the protest actions.

"Our organization does not plan any protests for November 7. The initiators, pretending to be representatives of Chernobyl organizations, are some people who do not have to do anything with Chernobyl and do not even have relevant certificates," he said.

Andreev is convinced that today the questions must be addressed by another, more civilized way: strengthening dialogue with the government to fulfill the terms of the Memorandum which was signed between their organization and the Cabinet of Ministers: "If the Union Chornobyl of Ukraine came out to protest, it would mean that we ourselves break the Memorandum, which was signed with the government, and thus free the Cabinet of Ministers from implementation of a number of commitments to increase pensions, improve health care, settle housing issues, and so forth."
