KIEV, January 13. /TASS/. Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada (parliament) on Tuesday approved in the first reading a draft law that grants the status of “war veteran” to those who were injured during mass public protests on Kiev's Independence Square, also known as Maidan.
The decision was backed by 233 parliamentarians.
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”.
