Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers on Nov. 13 passed a resolution and approved the Procedure for identification and satisfaction of social needs of veterans of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, Nazi victims and families of perished (dead) soldiers. The document will help maximize social protection and improve health care for war veterans and victims of Nazi persecution, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

The measures approved the format of a Social Passport for the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) veterans, Nazi victims and families of perished (dead) soldiers.

Experts say the Social Passport will contain a complete information about each person who needs a state care, including his place of residence and individual needs, financial assistance and social services. In addition, the document will include information on all benefits and subsidies of every veteran, and, importantly, the responsibilities for their provision.

The Social Passport will allow the state to more accurately calculate all the necessary expenses and integrate them in the state and local budgets. Knowing what every veteran needs, the state can fully provide him/her with the necessary services with a clear understanding of who, how and when they should be given. 

The implementation of the government’s resolution will increase the level of social protection of veterans, improve the level health and social services, as well as the physical infrastructure of hospitals, homes for disabled war veterans and other relevant institutions. Most importantly, the measure is an indication of the respect shown to those who fought and died for their country.
