TAMBOV, March 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Central Russia’s Tambov region is ready to accommodate veterans of the Great Patriotic War residing in Ukraine and to provide financial assistance to them, Oleg Betin, the region’s governor announced on Friday.
At a meeting with State Duma member, Chairman of the All-Russia Organization of War Veterans, Mikhail Moiseyev, Betin suggested establishing a special purpose fund for veterans of the Great Patriotic War, the Tambov regional administration’s press service said.
“We are fraternal peoples, so we cannot remain indifferent to what is happening there (in Ukraine),” Governor Betin said. “We should support the veterans of that war, who fought and defended our common homeland. In today's Ukraine they are the most vulnerable people.”
“Our region is ready not only to provide material assistance to the defenders of our country, but also, when necessary, to provide them with permanent housing,” he said. “The agencies concerned will start online consultations in the near future for all those who would like to use our brotherly help.
