New Housing for Soldiers
Some 180 dormitories for soldiers have been built
The brigade was formed from volunteers at the height of the war against Russian hybrid forces – in December 2014. Since then, the soldiers have lost 84 of their fellows, fought numerous battles, and gone through several rotations.
“I want to rest. To see my family, to talk to my friends. Everyone misses each other and waits for the return home. It’s always nice to go back home, to your family,” serviceman Vyacheslav Syryts said.
Having returned from the war, the soldiers will receive new accommodations. Instead of old barracks, they will have three dormitories and an apartment building.
“Just over the past few years, your brigade has received funding for infrastructure development amounting to more than 200 million hryvnias. Today, you received three dormitories. More than 400 contract soldiers can live in comfortable conditions. A building with 48 apartments, a canteen, a boiler station. Other military towns for the brigade are developing. Conditions are being created for you not only to defend every Ukrainian, while risking your life, but also to have a decent rest and recover,” Poltorak said.
Around 180 dormitories of this kind are now being built in Ukraine. One hundred of them are planned to be opened at the beginning of the summer.
