Ukraine will use Croatia’s experience in adapting war veterans to civilian life

Ukraine will use Croatia’s experience of psychosocial rehabilitation and professional adaptation of war veterans.

According to Ukrinform, this was discussed during a meeting between Minister of Veterans' Affairs of Ukraine Yulia Laputina and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Croatia to Ukraine Anica Djamic, the press service of the Ministry informs.

"The world needs to know that Ukrainian Donetsk and Luhansk regions are not just about the war. They are about people who in 2014 stood up for the country, helped the army, developed the volunteer movement. And today they develop their own business, implement projects in local communities and actually are the creators of Ukrainian modern traditions," Laputina said during the meeting.

The Minister invited Ambassador Djamic to organize a meeting between the heads of the Ministry of Croatian Veterans of the Republic of Croatia and the Ministry of Veterans’ Affairs of Ukraine after the quarantine measures end and invited to take part in the activities dedicated to the liberation of cities of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk in July, joint cultural and educational projects and exchange of experience in doing veteran business.

"The development of bilateral cooperation is enshrined in a memorandum concluded between our ministries. We can hold such a meeting in Kyiv or Zagreb," said the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs of Ukraine.

In turn, Ambassador Djamic confirmed the urgency of continuing cooperation between the two countries, in particular on the protection of war veterans and their families, work with veterans' organizations, psychosocial rehabilitation and professional adaptation of war veterans.

As reported, Croatia has a unique experience of peaceful reintegration after a long war. There are more than half a million veterans in Croatia.
