Lugansk People’s Republic Acting Head Leonid Pasechnik has urged permanent comprehensive assistance to children who were hurt in Kiev aggression.
Fifty-eight children were killed and another 183 were wounded in the LPR during the armed conflict, Pasechnik said at a meeting with Olga Bas who represents the Republic in the Federation Council upper house of the Russian parliament.
“I gave one week to the local authorities to get information on each child’s location and living conditions and provide all kinds of assistance to them on a permanent basis,” Pasechnik wrote on Telegram.
They must help them with schoolyear preparations, medical treatment or rehabilitation, getting passport and applying to university. Volunteers and social and political organizations have to join this work, while deputies of all level can take these families under personal patronage, he said.
Pasechnik believes that the parliamentary commission on the investigation of Kiev regime crimes against minors had to revise financial support in case of child’s death or injury, and urged Bas to raise this issue at the Commission’s meeting.
The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. The peace talks failed to reach tangible results due to Kiev’s position to settle the conflict by force.
President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation on February 24, 2022 to protect Donbass residents from Ukrainian aggression. Prior to that, LPR and DPR Heads Leonid Pasechnik and Denis Pushilin asked the Russian leader to provide military assistance. *i*ie
