«Many military personnel have actually lost their jobs, which they did in peacetime. So they will no longer be able to work in the same profession as before the war. And after they return from the front, we need to adapt them, train them, give them new knowledge and skills so that they can feed their families. This is very important», said the President of UNBA, BCU. – «We are the only organisation today that provides assistance to our members, our lawyers and their families. So we must also help our defenders adapt to a new peaceful life».
