This was announced by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine today, on April 17, after a meeting with American congressmen.
"During a meeting with US congressmen, we have agreed with Marcy Kaptur, Andy Harris and Sander Levin on a major partnership program for medical rehabilitation and psychological assistance to victims of post-war syndrome”, Arsen Avakov said.
He stressed that the United States has extensive experience in solving this problem.
"The military conflict, provoked by the Putin’s regime, has lasted more than 4 years and during this time about 600 thousand Ukrainians passed through the battle front. And we need your experience in overcoming this problem", the Minister said.
The parties also discussed the situation with the military conflict in Ukraine and the way to get out of it. Arsen Avakov stressed that he sees two possible scenarios for the development of the situation: the escalation of hostilities from Russia side or a peaceful settlement, which may be in the gradual withdrawal of the aggressor’s forces from the territory of Ukraine.
"The law enforcement agencies are already developing a strategy for the reintegration of the liberated territories, since it is the MIA forces who will be the first to enter the returned land. Therefore, it is extremely important to have a clear vision of this process", the Head of the ministry said.
In turn, congressman Marcy Kaptur expressed readiness to visit Ukraine in the near future to develop a practical algorithm for the strategy of reintegration.
