Amendments are made to the law “On the Status of War Veterans, Their Guarantees and Social Welfare”.
According to an explanatory notice to the draft law, also entitled to the status of "war crippled" will be persons who have become "crippled as a result of injuries or other bodily harm received during mass public protests in Ukraine from November 21, 2013 to February 21, 2014”.
