LPR provides financial aid to 14 WWII veterans from Kiev-controlled areas

LPR paid financial aid to 14 World War II veterans living in Kiev-controlled part of Lugansk Region by Victory Day, the Republic’s Labour and Social Policy Ministry said.

“As of 17 May 2017, 14 veterans received aid; lumpsum payments will continue until 30 September 2017,” it said.

LPR Council of Ministers earlier passed a resolution on allocating one-time payments to WW II veterans in Lugansk Region, including those in Ukraine-held areas, by Victory Day.

The offices providing such payments were launched on 15 March.

LPR Postal Service Director General Marina Pukhovtseva said the mobile social benefit center which opened at Stanitsa Luganskaya crossing point on 1 April, could service up to 50 people a day.

On February 17 LPR and DPR Heads Igor Plotnitskiy and Alexander Zakharchenko launched the program of humanitarian assistance for residents of Kiev-occupied part of Donbass. The main goal of the program is to provide financial, medical and educational aid to socially vulnerable groups.

LPR Telecom and Mass Communications Ministry launched the humanitarian program website.
