Practically every UAF fighter who has passed through the conflict in Donbass has a mental disorder and needs treatment. However, the government still hasn’t developed the mechanism for the rehabilitation of such military servicemen. This was stated on the air of radio “NV” by the chief military prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoly Matios.
“Nobody in the country speaks about the fact that every second person who has passed through the war has post-traumatic disorder. None of these second persons recognise their illness. Nobody wants to be pointed at and told that they have come from war in a bad state of mind. They have a sharpened perception of reality – white and black, the half tones are leveled out. Because the speed of decision-making and latent staying in one place because of the Minsk process, when you are shot at as a target, makes terrible changes in the psyche and psychotype of any person, however courageous and strong they may be. There are only 300 psychologists across the entire State in the system of the Ministry of Defence, and only four volunteer organisations that help to rehabilitate military servicemen”, he said.
According to the military prosecutor, the money for rehabilitation allocated from the budget simply doesn’t reach its destination because of the bureaucracy in specific departments.
“We have 109 million allocated by Groysman’s government for the rehabilitation of military servicemen. But we have a brainless category of bureaucrats in Ministry of Social Policy who till today still haven’t developed and given to the government an algorithm for the development of State funds for the rehabilitation of military servicemen,” summed up Anatoly Matios.
