We will remind, on November 14, the Verkhovna Rada adopted act No. 5697, which equated social benefits of the affected participants of revolution of dignity to the social benefits of military personnel who fought. So, in the law “On status of war veterans, guarantees of their social protection”, introduced a new section on the status of victims of participants of Revolution of dignity.
We are talking about the revolution of dignity, which received heavy, moderate or light injuries that did not lead to disability, if people sought medical help in the period from 21 November 2013 to 30 April 2014.
Such persons provided benefits and social guarantees provided for the combatants. However, this rule does not apply to the police, special forces, internal troops and members of the SCU who were wounded during the revolution of dignity.
The aforementioned persons shall issue a certificate of “Victim participant in the revolution of dignity.”
