During the meeting of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko urged to allocate one billion hryvnias to build comfortable accommodation for contract servicemen.
The President of Ukraine emphasized the necessity of providing normal housing conditions for contract servicemen in permanent dispositions of brigades. “We have over 90 thousand contract servicemen who signed contracts with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In fact, 100% of servicemen in the ATO area are contract servicemen. We must provide comfortable housing for them when they return to permanent dispositions. Dwellings for contract servicemen, not barracks”, - Petro Poroshenko said.
The President set the task to build dwellings for at least 15, 000 contract servicemen who “will have the opportunity to recreate and do away with the standards of the Soviet army”. For this purpose, one billion hryvnias will be allocated from the special fund of the State Budget. The President stressed that it is necessary to ensure construction within 150 thousand square meters of dwelling and build about 100 residential complexes with adequate infrastructure for accommodation and rehabilitation of servicemen.
