A rally has started at Khreshchatyk St. About six thousand Chernobyl and Afghan veterans marched from Independence Square and Grushevskogo St. to the Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers.
The poster, which was carried in the forefront of the march, says, "They passed away like candles quench: 1.2 million Chornobyl victims," reported a QHA newsman from the scene.
According to the captions on the banners, the rally united the representatives of the Chernobyl Union from Chernihiv, Rivne, Cherkassy and other Ukrainian cities.
According to the activists, they are going to meet with Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who had previously promised to sign a bill on the return of Articles 49, 50, 52 and 67 to the legal field.
- This is about the legal protection of Chernobyl victims and their pensions. The project has been signed by all Ministries, but has been lying in the Cabinet for two weeks, said Jacob Skopych, a member of Brovary public organization "Chernobyl Saved."
According to one of the rally participants, the problem is that a retirement age for Chernobyl victims has been raised and thus leveled with other retirees.
The protesters outside the Cabinet require the state to provide them with the promised legal protection.
- 30 years have passed since the Chernobyl accident, said Jacob Skopych.
