SOLEMN MEETING ORGANISATION COMMITTEE
OF VETERAN of 501 SAB of HM
IN COMMEMORATION OF 30 YEARS ANIVERSARY OF FORMATION
OF THE BATTALION IN NOVOGRAD – VOLYNSKYI TOWN
OF ZHYTOMYR REGION, UKRAINE
For the incomplete 10 years of war nearly 525,190 officers, warrant officers, sergeants, soldiers, workers and service-people passed through Afghanistan with Qualified commitment of Soviet Army. The casualty we great: - casualty and wounded-13,833 people; - became disabled-6,669 people. 6,879 of them – Russian people, 2,374 - Ukrainian, 1,067 – Uzbek, 611 - Belorussian, 195 – Moldavian people.
Even when the troops were pullout the lethality rate among combatants didn’t decrease and even began to grow. For example, in Kharkiv Municipal Union of Afghanistan Veterans the average lethality rate equals to dev.ortus-global.com/redirect/index/id/5615.html people per month. In region 11-15 people are imprisoned. The average pension of a combatant amounts to 1,300-1,500 UAH, for war disabled veterans of the second group – 2,500 UAH. The bonus on merit up to 140 UAH, it is nearly $17. The payment for housing and public utilities amounts to 500 – 700 UAH per month. It's hard to survive in such conditions.
Initiated by S. Vega (a Komsomol member of the battalion - 83-85) and Iu. Liedienov (Deputy for military technique of the battalion – 84-85) organization committee was created for running anniversary events. The information was sent out through the social network, was made a preliminary plan of events. The plan includes: making and installation of memorial stone, visiting the families of casualties and disabled people with giving presents, solemn events with awarding of medals from Ukrainian Union of Afghanistan Veterans, Russian Association “Boievoie Bratstvo” and Consulates of Russia and Afghanistan. This event is planed to be covered by electronic and published Mass Media.
