In Ukraine, Coordination centre for assistance for ATO soldiers was established. It will operate in the form of a telephone hotline. This was reported by the project initiator, “Samopomich” Union MP, Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Health Iryna Sysoyenko during the roundtable under the topic of “Legal aid to the ATO participants: problems and ways to solve them”.
“The ATO participants, their family members, and representatives of voluntary movements can call the hotline. Operators will provide legal counselling, information support, coordination for assistance after an injury,” she said.
She noted that the work of call-center was only the first step in the activities of the Coordination centre. When the need arises, there will be more initiatives.
According to her, now it is important to know all the problems directly from the soldiers and their families in order to be able to objectively monitor the situation and to identify the actual problems.
Toll-free hotline for the ATO participants (0800-30-00-21) is available every day from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.
