“A cell is opened absolutely everywhere, the task of which is to receive requests for help and find people and resources to give this help. We have launched a hotline 8-800-200-34-11, where today we have received more than 18,000 calls,” Metelev said. There you can get legal assistance related both directly to mobilization and obtaining support measures, and psychological counseling.
The deputy also proposed assigning a mobilized group of a university or a senior class of a school to each family, so that they would regularly come to them and help in everyday life.
