"Employees of the defense sector and the Health Ministry have united for the first time to sign a Memorandum of Cooperation. This is a very important thing as communication and cooperation are the main pillars of further cooperation. Under the document, we will strengthen cooperation and implement projects on psychological rehabilitation of veterans, participants in combat actions," said Deputy Interior Minister Tetiana Kovalchuk.

According to her, later the innovations will be extended to law enforcement officers and civil servants who need such assistance.
